520    As the visionary behind the planned community in Radburn, 
       New Jersey, Clarence Stein was heralded as one of the most
       progressive and controversial American architects and 
       planners of the twentieth century. His ideas influenced 
       well-known developments in Greenbelt and Columbia, 
       Maryland; Reston, Virginia; and Woodlands, Texas. His 
       collaboration with Benton MacKaye in the Regional Planning
       Association of America led to the building of the 
       Appalachian Trail, America's prototypical greenway. 
520 8  In The Writings of Clarence S. Stein: Architect of the 
       Planned Community, Kermit Carlyle Parsons presents a wide-
       ranging selection of more than 500 annotated letters, 
       papers, and other writings that shed light upon the 
       personal struggles and professional achievements of this 
       major force for change in community planning and regional 
       design. Parsons supplements these documents with a 
       succinct biographical introduction to Stein's life and 
       career, 137 illustrations (including photographs, plans of
       Stein's work, and personal sketches), a complete list of 
       his many projects, a bibliography of Stein's own articles 
       and books as well as articles about him, and biographical 
       sketches of the people mentioned in the documents.
