"'The Urban Politics Reader' draws together the very best of classic and contemporary writings to illuminate the basic questions of urban politics - how do interests contend for power over the distribution of resources and why do some win while others lose? Contributions from Robert K. Merton, Samuel P. Hays, Susan Fainstein, Rufus P. Browning and Saskia Sassen are included amongst the 40 generous selections. The Reader juxtaposes the main theoretical approaches to urban power with vivid accounts of actual political experiences on key themes such as the urban crisis, the politics of race, ethnicity and gender, national urban policy, suburbanisation and globalization. Strom and Mollenkopf illustrate how thinking about cities is central to our understanding of democracy and citizenship and highlight how the central questions of urban politics change over time, but that the struggle by new groups to gain access and representation is a common theme throughout history. The Reader provides an essential resource for students of urban politics drawing together important but widely dispersed writings. Editorial commentaries preceding each entry not only demonstrate its significance, but also outline the issues surrounding the topic, while the associated bibliography enables deeper investigations."--Publisher description.… (more)
