Overview

Twenty contributing political scientists, sociologists, architects, geographers, and planning experts explore issues related to the foundations of citizenship, the organization of politics in modern democracies, and the renewed practice of political participation. Their papers consider the experiences of three countries with very different approaches to citizen involvement in urban governance; they analyze the intentions and effects of having citizens participate in the policy-making process and highlight innovative new forms of partnership that are emerging in metropolitan areas. The collection grew from a seminar held by the French and British Planning Study Group at the U. of Sheffield in September 2002. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
