City Politics : The Political Economy of Urban America - by Dennis R. Judd & Annika M. Hinze (Paperback)
About this item
- All-new sections on immigration, the Black Lives Matter Movement, the downtown condo boom, and the impact of the sharing economy on urban neighborhoods (especially the rise of Airbnb).
- Individual chapters introducing students to pressing urban issues such as gentrification, sustainability, metropolitanization, urban crises, the creative class, shrinking cities, racial politics, and suburbanization.
- The most recent census data integrated throughout to provide current figures for analysis, discussion, and a more nuanced understanding of current trends.
Taught on its own, or supplemented with the optional reader American Urban Politics in a Global Age for more advanced readers, City Politics remains the definitive text on urban politics – and how they have evolved in the US over time – for a new generation of students and researchers.
