Editorial Reviews

Review

"This anthology meets an important need as a resource for the analysis of leadership problems, skills, and backgrounds of the more prominent black regional leadership in the second half of the 20th century. Based largely on original research, these essays delve into the realities of African American communities and their efforts to cope with neglected urban environments by sponsoring candidates to the executive branch of local government." -- Choice "[Adler and Colburn] begin with useful overviews of mayoral campaigns and administrations. Their contributors follow with eight well-executed chapters on ten big-city black mayors... A well-crafted collection." -- Michael W. Homel, Journal of American History "A welcome addition to the literature for those who teach urban politics, urban history, or any classes that deal with the struggle for political power by racial minorities... Adler's comprehensive discussion of the variables that help to explain the advance and limitations of African American political power in American cities is alone worth the price of admission. -- Richard A. Keiser, H-Urban, H-Net Reviews ADVANCE PRAISE "This excellent new collection of original essays on black big-city mayors provides essential historical perspective on racial change in late twentieth-century urban politics. Deeply researched and well written, this volume represents a major step forward in recent urban political history."- Raymond A. Mohl, editor of The Making of Urban America "Going beyond a discussion of the election of black officeholders to survey their experiences in governing, these clear, concise essays examine the factors that shaped the fortunes of black mayors trying to run their communities." - Steven F. Lawson, author of Running for Freedom: Civil Rights and Black Politics in America since 1941"A welcome addition to the literature for those who teach urban politics, urban history, or any classes that deal with the struggle for political power by racial minorities... Adler's comprehensive discussion of the variables that help to explain the advance and limitations of African American political power in American cities is alone worth the price of admission. -- Richard A.
