More About This Textbook

Overview

Two political scientists offer a sourcebook for civic leaders interested in exploring city-county consolidation as a solution to community problems. Editors Leland (U. of North Carolina, Charlotte) and Thurmaier (Iowa State U.) had the 17 contributors follow a common research design so that each case study can be compared and evaluated on the same variables. The cases, which come from 10 states in the South, West, and Midwest, point planners to what works as well as what amounts to a recipe for disaster. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
