Big City Politics in Transition, Hardback Book

Big City Politics in Transition Hardback

Edited by H. V. Savitch, John C. Thomas

Part of the Urban Affairs Annual Reviews series


This volume examines how government and administration in America's largest cities have changed between 1960 and 1990.

Each chapter traces demographic and economic changes over this vital, and at times turbulent, thirty year period explaining what those changes mean for politics, policies and the general quality of life.

Analytic and comparative chapters extract patterns and variations which emerge from the city profiles.

Each profile addresses common issues in socio-economic, coalitional, institutional, process, values and policy changes in the following American cities: Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, St.

Louis, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
