Description

What is the distinctive character of America's cities? How have our metropolitan regions evolved since the Colonial period? What effect will local politics have on the future of the American city? These are the questions Daniel J. Elazar addresses in this third volume of his highly-acclaimed 'Cities of the Prairie' trilogy. Recognizing the growing alienation from local institutions on the part of city-dwellers nation-wide, Elazar explains why the restoration of local attachments should be a matter of first priority. Co-published with Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
