Description: Judd, Dennis R., Swanstrom, Todd, City Politics: Private Power Public Policy, 3rd Edition*\ Praised for its narrative style, strong research base, and distinctive theme-that urban politics in the U.S. has evolved as a dynamic interaction between governmental power and private purposes-the new edition of this #1 book is the most extensive revision yet. It has been updated to include preliminary data from the 2000 census, information about urban partisan movements and a new chapter on urban sprawl. Three primary themes are woven throughout the text: the imperative of growth; the challenge of governance; and the politics of secession. For those interested in urban politics and studies.
