Description:

Updated in its 8th Edition, City Politics argues that the politics of growth, the politics of governance, and enclave politics are the three imperatives that dissolve the past and present into a singular, continuous narrative. Praised for the clarity of its writing, careful research, and distinctive theme - that urban politics in the United States has evolved as a dynamic interaction among governmental power, private actors, and a politics of identity - City Politics remains a classic study of urban politics.
