“A major strength of Urban Politics: A Reader is the retention of the historical origins of urban politics while at the same time balancing the contemporary relevance of urban governance. I particularly like the book’s focus on the debate about power in American cities, and McGovern’s choice to highlight the significance of smaller cities in understanding urban politics is an added bonus.”
“The collection of readings in Urban Politics: A Reader provides a rich set of insights into the political forces that influence the shape and pace of urban development. The integration of writings from politicians and journalists sprinkled throughout are well done, and their perspectives can shed a good deal of light on urban issues.”
“McGovern’s Urban Politics: A Reader embraces the fundamental concepts, theories, and themes that guide the study of urban politics. It is complementary to other urban politics texts, comprehensive for undergraduate study, well organized, and long overdue.”
