“Managing Urban America provides a solid foundation to begin ‘the conversation.’ It has an easy-to-read format and touches on numerous aspects of government on the local, state, and federal levels. The chapters help lead into discussions that focus on real-world examples.”
“Managing Urban America is straightforward and an excellent text for an undergraduate course in local government management. The book uses a familiar public administration framework to cover the most essential topics in local government. The writing is straightforward and easy to follow, but doesn’t shy away from presenting the intergovernmental context in which American cities operate.”
“Managing Urban America charts and explores change over time across a number of key dimensions. It is a clear and analytical examination of fiscal, social, and geographical factors with an emphasis on ‘The Citizen’, their views, and agency.”
“The clear writing and focus on management makes Managing Urban America lively and interesting. The inclusion of a chapter on planning and economic development is great, unusual, and essential.”
