Good read with an insight in local government and regionalism.
Very useful as a political guide.
Much in opposition to my professor, this is a good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, as so far joy can go for a textbook. It gets three stars simply b/c that's as high as a textbook can be rated by this reviewer.
This is a pretty informative and interesting book. I would reccomend it to someone interested in persuing an education in urban politics.
It's so easy
The description of this product was on target, and the book came in very good condition. Hardly any writing in it, and not water damaged! The textbook was a very reasonable price and I'll be sure to shop on Amazon again for textbooks.

The group I purchased from was quick, had great customer service, and they replied to my email of questions very promptly. I was very satisfied with the product, the shipment, the entire process really.
It was a good book.
It was just that it was a little bit late even when I wanted it expedited.
i love to purchase things at amazon, they're never disappointing . this book was as new as possible, i love it. thank you seller......
This is a good read for anyone who is interrested in the development of the city and the politics within. It opens with the birth of the city and how advances in technology led to the outward expansion of the city. One of the most interresting features is how the book describes the growth of the politcal machine in Chicago. In a later chapter, the authors then compare the fiscal policies of Chicago and New York City and how machine politics may have been the key to Chicago's success. The book also goes into detail about "white flight": the moving of the middle/upper-class sectors away from the city to settle into different types of suburbs. These suburbs then become a self-sustaining entity capable of enacting their own governmental policies which include exclusionary tactics designed to weed out those of lower incomes, certain age brackets, or those of an "unacceptable" racial background. It then goes into detail about the Court's opinion on these exclusionary policies. If you're interrested in how cities and urban politics are created then this book is a great start.
