My edited book, Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach was published by Oxford University Press February 1, 2016 and won the 2017 Canadian Institute of Planners Award of Merit (Planning Publications). It is a collection of 34 case studies in Canadian planning written by academic and practicing planners across the country. It is available on Amazon.ca and OUP. Students can rent the book on Redshelf.

My second book, Transit-Oriented Development: Learning from International Case Studies, was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2020. Based on a study of 11 case studies in TOD conducted at the University of Amsterdam, the book adds new material on TOD including an entire chapter on equitable approaches (e.g. preserving affordable housing, assisting businesses in TOD corridors). It can be found here.
