Overview


Recently, budgetary restraints and institutional gridlock have limited the role of the national government in domestic policymaking. Subnational governments have responded by assuming primary responsibility for a number of key problems, including economic development, educational improvement, environmental regulation, and health and welfare innovations. The United States has some 80,000 subnational governments from nation-sized states to mosquito abatement districts. A concise introduction to state-local relations, this volume of nine original essays includes an overview of the structure of state-local arrangements, central policy issues in state-local relations, and the likely future of state-local relations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ten essays explore relations among the some 80,000 sub-national governments in the US, especially in light of the increased responsibility that is devolving on them as the national government pulls away from economic development, education, environmental regulation, and health and welfare. Among the topics are the intergovernmental setting, union and home rule, trends, politics of fiscal relations, partners for growth, and disaggregating state-local relations. Paper edition (unseen), $20.00. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
