Rediscovering Thomas Adams

Rural Planning and Development in Canada

Suburbanization, affordable housing, mass transportation, loss of fertile lands - these are modern problems, yet they are not new. Thomas Adams grappled with these same issues nearly a century ago, when he wrote Rural Planning and Development, a book that quickly became a touchstone for planners and planning in Canada. Reprinted for the first time and updated with commentaries by leading Canadian planners, this book highlights Adams’ influence on the planning profession and the continued relevance of his comprehensive vision for planning - to move beyond the demands of the moment to embrace long-term strategies for building stronger rural communities.

About the Author

Wayne J. Caldwell is professor of rural planning in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development at the University of Guelph.


"Thomas Adams' book is a significant part of the history of planning in Canada … It tells us much about rural planning and development at a time when Canada first began to be transformed into an urban nation … The authors [of the commentaries] have seized upon its republication as an opportunity to explore contemporary rural planning and development issues."—Michael Bunce, Associate Professor Emeritus, Department of Social Sciences, University of Toronto
