9780815700876: Regionalism and Realism: A Study of Governments in the New York Metropolitan Area (Century Foundation Books (Brookings Paperback))


Drawing on the history of state and local government in the New York Tri-State metropolitan region, the authors present a pathbreaking new theory about the values reformers must understand and balance in order to tackle the hard challenges of reforming and regionalizing local governance in the complex, dynamic world of American politics and public policy. Their examination of the way 2,179 local governments in the Tri-State region have evolved over more than a century pays special attention to New York City, but is applicable to other metropolitan areas. It brings to life ideas that are crucial to a subject that in the academic literature is often treated in a way that is abstract and hard to grasp. This is a valuable book for scholars, political leaders, and students interested in regionalism in metropolitan America and in the fascinating history and governance of the nation¡¯s largest city and its vast metropolitan region.

About the Author:



Gerald Benjamin is dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of political science at the State University College at New Paltz. Richard P. Nathan is professor of political science and public policy at the State University of New York, Albany. He also serves as director of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government and as provost of the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the university.


Review:

"It moves well beyond a case study of a single metropolitan area to discuss, with sophistication and insight, how regionalism is affecting governance more generally within metropolitan areas.... The final chapter, Lessons for the Future, contains rich and pertinent advice and should be required reading for all those seeking to reform how metropolitan areas are governed. Highly recommended for all libraries." —E.T. Jones, University of Missouri, St. Louis, Choice, 3/1/2002



"[A] smart, compelling, and eminently insightful book.... This is a blunt, pragmatic, and highly readable book. Students and practitioners of metropolitan affairs- and particularly those putting all their eggs in regionalism's basket- will do well to heed its course-correcting call." —Kathryn A. Foster, University of Buffalo, Urban Affairs Review, 7/1/2002
