Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In American States and Cities, Professors Gray and Eisinger help students understand American public affairs through consideration of the role that subnational governments play today in shaping the political life of the nation. Using the concepts of exit, voice, and loyalty, this text explores the political and policy implications of the migration of people and businesses from region to region, city to suburb and state to state. This volume also covers the framework for policymaking - governors and mayors, legislative bodies, voters, parties, and interest groups, and the bureaucracy - in thorough detail. New additions to the second edition include chapters on the state bureaucracy and on community power, discussion of contemporary policy issues, inclusion of the latest social science literature, and in-depth information on the standard framework elements of state and local government and politics. The coverage of policy areas is also greatly expanded, breaking what were formerly just two policy chapters into four to include a discussion of issues in constructing and regulating technology infrastructure.
