Daniel Kemmis is a successful politician, former Montana state legislator, and current second-term mayor of Missoula, Montana. He is rare among elected officials as a thoughtful interpreter of and commentator on the nature of citizenship and political responsibility; even more rare, he is a fluent and engaging writer. The Good City and the Good Life is a wide-ranging discussion of democracy as a human enterprise. Kemmis uses personal experience and the experience of other cities and citizens in exploring key issues before the public. These issues include economic growth and development, education, health, and cultural life, from hometown Missoula to Baltimore, Dallas, and Seattle in the United States, to Germany and Japan in looking around the world. Though laced with references to literature, philosophy, history, and the work of important contemporary urbanologists, this is a down-to-earth and deeply felt work intended to reach out to all levels in a society concerned about its future

Daniel Kemmis grew up on a small farm in eastern Montana and was educated at Harvard University and the University of Montana Law School. He fulfilled his lifelong fascination with politics by serving in the Montana Legislature as Speaker of the Montana House of Representatives, and subsequently as the Mayor of Missoula. Widely regarded as the Mountain West's leading contemporary thinker and writer on topics of human society and regionalism, Kemmis has written two books, Community and the Politics of Place and Good City and the Good Life. In addition to his books, he has written numerous articles for national magazines and journals, covering topics ranging from community building to Western states' politics. In 1997, he received the Charles Frankel Prize, presented by President Clinton, for his outstanding contributions to the humanities and he was recognized in 1995 by the Utne Reader as one of "100 Visionaries."
