This collection of essays is a tribute to the life and work of Tom Fookes (1943–2013), professional planner, educator, academic and a man of great integrity, who inspired others. Some essays reflect upon his contribution to the planning discipline, while others advance new and provocative ideas. Combined, they offer the reader a refreshing opportunity to think again about human settlements and the ecological/social contexts that sustain them. The prospects for human wellbeing have never been more uncertain. Response demands not just new ideas but ‘dangerous’ ones.
