Two eminent scholars of urban politics present a fresh analysis of politics and policy in American cities. The central metaphor of the book is the "Urban Web"--the complex system of relationships among history, economics, demographics, geography, psychology, race, relations, and government policy. This web responds to every push or pull, and profoundly affects teh outcome of policy. The book presents ten theories of urban politics showing how each theory provides only a part of the overall picture. The authors provide new interpretations of political topics while attempting to convey the experience of two veteran observers of the American urban political scene.
