Annotation: In presenting a format for planning social justice for all citizens, not just those accused of crimes, this book discusses the nature of planning, the foundations of planning, the problems of planning, and how planning is done.
Abstract: In discussing the nature of planning for social justice, justice planning is placed in the context of all other social plans, with all other principles of planning that are of permanent value to planners identified. The different types of planning are disccussed, and a simple classification scheme, based on time-frame, purpose, and effect, are discussed. The discussion of the foundations of planning addresses the medium of all coherent human effort: communication. The distinction between causation and correlation is made, followed by consideration of ideas, their labels, and consequences. The concluding chapter dealing with foundations of planning portrays planning successes and failures as well as factors contributing to each. Chapters focusing on the problems of planning consider of obstacles interfering with planning, the implementation of plans, the monitoring of plan implementation, and the evaluation of results achieved. The concluding part of the book presents specific techniques and technologies useful to planners. The final chapter calls for planners to submit their plans to a complete review and assessment by outside parties, so that those most affected by the plans may have an input. Chapter notes and a subject index are provided.
