By T. Glazier on December 30, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was led to this book through some other references and found it extremely comprehensive. Oakerson peels back the layers of the onion to expose why consolidation and the structures of governance are so difficult to accurately analyze. I think that he does a great job of providing a balanced argument which leaves the reader with a clearer understanding of how and why considerations in consolidation can be so difficult for a community.

I found myself having to pause after almost every paragraph to digest exactly what the implications were of the statements made. Oakerson ties theory in with real examples which, for me anyway, helped to bridge the economics language with the applications that I would understand. I work in government consolidation so I found this very useful and interesting. It is specific to this narrow space and can be technical at times, but I think that it is a great read. I recommend this for anyone with interest in government modernization or consolidation at the local level.
