Offering a study of community power, this book demonstrates the political role which investment plays in local politics. It shows how a combative young mayor, named Dennis Kucinich, challenged the conservative logic of growth politics, but was unable to put forth a positive agenda to address the inequities of urban development.

Breaks new ground in the study of community power
Best Book in Urban Politics Award, American Political Science AssociationFrom the Inside Flap:
"Swanstrom has presented a well written account of the Kucinich administration. He avoids making demons of the actors, and provides suggestions for wider applications of his case study insights. The book will be useful to students and teachers of urban politics notably for its discussion of the role of private investment in government strategies."
Growth and Change
"The book is of great value because of its documentation of political decisions controlled by economic forces; this documentation is thorough and provides an excellent bibliography for students of politics."
"Swanstrom documents nicely at the municipal level the way in which capital can force a political readjustment through its economic domination.... A worthwhile addition to the literature in urban political economy and the best available discussion of events in Cleveland during the years when its political regime advanced programmes at odds with business interests."
