Theories of Urban Politics by David Judge

Book Description

Providing a comprehensive overview of the main theories which structure debate on urban politics, the internationally respected contributors to this textbook provide a clear and coherent account which is organized around four major questions. The first part looks at issues of power and examines both traditional and recent theories of power in cities. The nature of public bureaucracy and those officials that have a leadership role within city government are discussed in the second part. The third part examines the ways that citizens are involved in the process of urban politics. The final part seeks to place urban politics in terms of the social economic environment and the complex architecture of government in which it has to operate. Theories of Urban Politics is an excellent survey of the current state of theoretical debate in urban studies and will be essential reading for students.
