Resumen

Eds. Jonathan S. Davies, David L. Imbroscio. 'Anybody who thinks the study of urban politics is stagnating needs to pick up a copy of "Theories of Urban Politics". Insightful analysis of scholarship on traditional topics is supplemented by chapters on non-traditional topics, including the new institutionalism, network governance, and urban leadership!

'Connects the best traditions of urban political theory with important new contributions on emerging themes. This completely revised second edition is an invaluable book for new students and established scholars. It is accessible, theoretically rich, and maps out an exciting and challenging research agenda. It will spend more time open and on the desk, than closed and on the bookshelf!' - Professor Chris Skelcher, University of Birmingham.'Many colleagues have told us that our edition of "Theories of Urban Politics" provided great insights and grounding to students and seasoned researchers alike. We are delighted that so able a successor has emerged.

Restructured into four new parts -
