This book will seek to close the gaps on the role of France in exporting Eurocentric spatial and environmental design principles and practice.  It does so by analyzing the major spatial and physical development projects that French colonial authorities implemented in France’s colonial empire and elsewhere from the 15th to the 20th century. French urban planning ideology, principles and practice were not exported exclusively to territories under French colonial suzerainty. Accordingly, the book focuses on major physical and spatial planning schemes inspired by French planning thought in territories without a history of French colonialism.
