In recent years, the ways in which local communities are governed has been transformed, as the activities of national specialized agencies have expanded and local government has been debased. It is against this background that this major new book provides a comparative study of the variety of local government systems throughout the world, which have evolved in response to this trend. Sam Humes has considerable experience in this field, both as a practitioner and theoretician, and he brings this expertise to bear in outlining the major models and features of different local government systems. Throughout, the description of these systems is accompanied by a consideration of the conceptual issues involved in the development of institutions and services. "Local Governance and National Power" may be of interest to students and researchers of local and comparative government, as well as all local government practitioners.
