Summary

In this reader, two leading scholars have brought together a collection that represent some of the most important trends in urban scholarship today. The readings fit together in a political economy framework so that, considered as a whole, they illustrate how public power and private resources interact in the governance of cities. Users appreciate the reader's cutting edge scholarship, placement of U.S. cities in a world context, and strong introductory essays by the editors. Also available in a new edition: Judd & Swanstrom's City Politics 3/e. The reader is the perfect complement for this main text. (To order The Politics of Urban America 3/e packaged with City Politics 3/e, give ISBN 0-201-77397-X to your bookstore).
