Despite seemingly odd and obscure chapter titles, this is a broadly relevant and coherent work. Topics covered give the reader new ways to see and interpret the functioning of local one-party government. On a subject as amorphous as neoliberalism, a book length treatment allows a fuller understanding. Many of the contributing authors convincingly use quantitative analyses and maps.
Yet, in the action plan offered in the final chapter, this book founders on the next-to-last page. Suddenly we are told, "There is a deep divide between local African American and Latino political elites that is overlaid with a racial divide that separates both from many white progressives." This statement should have been developed in one or two chapters, particularly because it follows a brief summary of Skocpol's "narrowing of civic life" a few pages earlier.
Proofreading failed to catch a possible error on page 86 where Wasserstein, not Wasserman, might have been the right name. Figure 5.3 on page 126 is one of the worst charts I've ever seen. The authors should have presented their data in a table.
