Overview

This popular text has been thoroughly updated and revised to sharpen the focus on its 'bias and change' theme, include the latest data/studies informing the field, and cover important new topics (e.g., flood disaster in New Orleans).

Political Change in the Metropolis, Eighth Edition, continues to focus on the political changes that have taken place in American cities and the reactions of urban scholars to them. In addition to offering scholarly perspectives, the text offers students a theoretical framework for interpreting these changing events for themselves. This framework analyzes the patterns of bias inherent in the organization and operation of urban politics, giving students an in-depth look at the fascinating and constantly changing face of urban politics.

Features

  • Accessible writing style engages students in the material.
  • Provides excellent coverage of the impact of immigrants and ethnic groups in the making of the American city.
  • An abundance of historical material helps students better understand the origins and development of urban politics and structures.
  • Case studies throughout the text give students an opportunity to apply important material.
  • The text exposes students to first-rate discussions of political phenomena and empirical literature on those phenomena.
