The City at Stake:
Secession, Reform, and the Battle for Los Angeles
Raphael J. Sonenshein
With a new afterword by the author

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

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"A lively, detailed, yet academic book. I imagine reading it would prove instructive for all those involved in or concerned with public administration and public policy, particularly at the municipal level--and particularly in terms of building coalitions."--David Hodgkinson, Law Society Journal

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"An absorbing insider's account of the maneuvering among elites in a major American city in the process of redefining itself politically. Sonenshein's analysis of behind-the-scenes politicking is virtually unmatched in the urban politics literature."--Michael Jones-Correa, Cornell University

"The author does a good job of combining his personal notes with newspaper articles and interviews to tell a complete story of charter reform. This should be an important contribution to the urban politics literature."--Bruce Cain, University of California, Berkeley
