This lushly illustrated book -- Beyond Burnham: An Illustrated History of Planning for the Chicago Region -- provides a fascinating account of a century of visionary planning for metropolitan Chicago. From Daniel H. Burnham and Edward H. Bennett's famed 1909 Plan of Chicago to the push for superhighways and airports to battles over urban sprawl, the book showcases an illustrated portrait of the big personalities and "big plans" they espoused. *
