Hank V. Savitch & Paul Kantor

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"Savitch and Kantor have produced a daring comparison of disparate cities ranging from Naples to Houston, with Paris and New York in the mix as well. Thorough research and close analysis are combined to forceful effect."--Paul E. Peterson, Henry Lee Shattuck Professor of Government, Harvard University

"This is a big, interesting, and provocative book. Ambitious in sweep and confident in tone, it moves us toward a more thorough understanding of the role of human agency in city fortunes in a world increasingly shaped by huge forces that had seemed to many at first glance simply to trump political will. The authors write about each city with a sure hand, and even if you are not familiar with a particular place, you come away with a real feel for it."--Peter Eisinger, Wayne State University

"This long-awaited book offers a truly comparative analysis of urban development. It does so in a clear, concise, and systematic fashion. The authors approach regime theory from a novel vantage point and add significantly to the theory. Overall, this book significantly advances our knowledge about the relationship between globalization, economic restructuring, and urban policy choice."--Jon Pierre, University of Goteborg
