ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Arthur L. Littleworth has long been considered one of the preeminent water law attorneys in the United States. In his more than 50 years of legal practice at Best Best & Krieger, he participated in all aspects of water law.
Eric L. Garner practices water rights and supply law at Best Best & Krieger where he has served as the managing partner since 2005. He represents clients in surface water and groundwater matters throughout California.
“Littleworth and Garner have achieved the impossible. They have untied California’s Gordian knot of water rights, laws, and policies and made them understandable for all. With California’s water management teetering on the edge of crisis, this timely book is critical for everyone working on and learning about the state’s challenges in an age of growing population, unsustainable water demand, and increasing climate change impacts.” - Mark Gold, Associate Vice Chancellor of Environment and Sustainability, UCLA

by William Fulton and Paul Shigley
Since it was first published in 1991, Guide to California Planning has served as the authoritative text on city and county planning practice throughout the state.
In this revised and expanded fifth edition, William Fulton and Paul Shigley lay out planning laws and processes in detail and describe how planning really works in California—how cities and counties and developers and citizen groups all interact with each other on a daily basis to shape California communities and the California landscape, for better and for worse. Significant new topics addressed in this edition include the state’s increasing focus on infill and transit-oriented development and climate action plans, including ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
