The Urban Politics Reader

The Urban Politics Reader


Price: Rp670 500


Book Description
The Urban Politics Reader draws together classic and
contemporary writings that best illuminate the basic questions of urban
politics – how interests contend for power over the distribution of
resources and why some win while others lose. Contributions from Martin
Shefter, Clarence Stone, Rufus P. Browning, and Saskia Sassen are included
among the 32 generous selections.

The Reader juxtaposes the main theoretical approaches to urban power with
vivid accounts of actual political experiences on such key themes as the
urban crisis, the politics of race, ethnicity and gender, national urban
policy, suburbanization and globalization. Strom and Mollenkopf illustrate
how thinking about cities is central to our understanding of democracy and
citizenship and how although the parties to urban politics may change over
time, the struggle of new groups to gain access and representation in a
constant theme.

Editor’s introductions suggest topics and questions for class discussion,
demonstrate the significance of urban politics, and suggest directions for
further reading and thinking, while the associated bibliography enables
deeper investigations. By drawing together important but widely dispersed
writings, The Urban Politics Reader provides an essential resource for
students of urban politics. The volume will also have widespread appeal for
students of urban sociology, urban affairs, urban planning, and public
policy.
