Editors Davies (governance and public management, U. of Warwick) and Imbroscio (political science and urban and public affairs, U. of Louisville) and 18 contributors define the study of theories of urban politics and the relationship between theory and practice. This extensively re-written second edition also addresses current and future research challenges, the history of community power, governance and the urban bureaucracy, race and urban political theory, urban political leadership, gender and sexuality, and urban social movements. The book is the result of numerous recent conference panels conducted at recent Urban Affairs Association and British Political Studies Association annual meetings.
