Book Description

First published in 1914, in various writings on German life and institutions, Dawson has touched upon isolated aspects of the subject of municipal government. The book, as its title explains, is concerned solely with questions of urban administration, yet without the limitation which the use of the word "municipal" might seem to suggest. The larger German cities and towns correspond for all practical purposes to the municipalities of the United Kingdom, as the smaller German towns correspond to the urban districts.
