"The field of Urban Dynamics, the problem of our urban environment, clearly illustrates the strong emphasis that systems engineering can give to social problem solving. Even Professor Forrester, who has written one of the most exciting if not one of the most controversial texts in this field, does not consider the techniques available for analyzing the dynamics of urban growth in the problems of our urban society to be perfect. In fact, the need for improvement is one of the reasons for this book. The authors of these papers are among those who are engaged in the process of refining techniques to make them useful for the better understanding and for action-oriented policy change relative to the urban crisis of our world." - Foreword by Harold E Hoelscher. ; University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering publication series; Ex-Library; Vol. 3; xiv, 290 pages.
