Summary
Governing the Metropolitan Region: America's New Frontier is a new, up-to-date text for the basic local government management course (upper division or graduate) that addresses the structural, political and management issues associated with regional and metropolitan government. It also can complement more specialized courses such as urban planning, urban government, state and local politics, and intergovernmental relations. Key features: More current than other available books on the subject. Introduces the key concept of the "urban core" as the basis for governance of the overall metropolitan area. The first book to stress the interconnectedness of intergovernmental relations and state-local politics for political scientists, the political sociology of "community" for the urban planners, and governance as both a political and management issue for those in public administration. Exceptional coverage of fiscal issues and intergovernmental relationships. Governing the Metropolitan Region: America's New Frontier is supported with extensive charts and graphs, summary "Things to Ponder" sections to spark further thought and discussion, and an extensive bibliography. --Provided by publisher
