From the Publisher"Dilworth's book is a revelation. Placing the study of cities within the literature on American political development is a very smart idea that vastly expands the boundaries of the field of urban politics."
—Dennis Judd, University of Illinois, Chicago
"This is a uniquely strong edited volume. Dilworth has assembled an impressive and remarkable range of the very smartest scholars working on the topic today. There is no book or article currently available that does what this book does, and the intellectual impact of this volume will be quite profound. This book has the potential to challenge and transform both APD and urban studies."
—Dorian T. Warren, Columbia University
"By asking, ‘What is a city?’ the contributors to this volume claim a prominent role for urban centers in explaining American political development."
—Richard Bensel, Cornell University
