GOVERNING AMERICA'S URBAN AREAS offers students a detailed understanding of the structures and political processes intrinsic to metropolitan government. Focusing on the problems and promises of coordinated metropolitan governance, Alan Saltzstein demonstrates that American cities--which need strong government--are often governed in reality by a variety of weak institutions and forces. This theme is woven throughout the text, giving students a common framework within which to understand such fundamental social science concepts as power, efficiency, violence, representation, and organizational structure.
