About the Book

This book begins with an introductory outline of the structure of the city politics of the United States. There is a study of the city in the federal system, including the politics of feudal aid. This is followed by four case studies: the political roles of mayor, manager, boss and adminstrator-entrepreneur in the city.

Madgwick concludes with some comparative reflections indicating the significance of this study for British local government.

This book was first published in 1970.
