Cities―and urban managers―are resilient in the face of their many challenges. Managing Urban America, now in its seventh edition, guides students through the politics of urban management―doing less with more while managing conflict, delivering goods and services, responding to federal and state mandates, adapting to changing demographics, and coping with economic and budgetary woes.

Fully revised, this new edition:

  • highlights the economic difficulties cities currently face, and how they will rebound;
  • expands significantly upon the concept of e-government, and offers numerous examples in both theory and practice;
  • integrates what were once competing models of government (REGO, NPM, NPS, and TPA) into what the authors call the Modern Public Management (MPM) model, which draws on the positive aspects of each to better manage the modern city;
  • includes many new case studies, including some with a global perspective as the authors examine the management of international cities; and
  • thoroughly updates all data and scholarship.

Review:

"The clear writing and focus on management makes Managing Urban America lively and interesting. The inclusion of a chapter on planning and economic development is great, unusual, and essential." -- June Speakman "Managing Urban America charts and explores change over time across a number of key dimensions. It is a clear and analytical examination of fiscal, social, and geographical factors with an emphasis on `The Citizen', their views, and agency." -- Richard Kotter "Managing Urban America is straightforward and an excellent text for an undergraduate course in local government management. The book uses a familiar public administration framework to cover the most essential topics in local government. The writing is straightforward and easy to follow, but doesn't shy away from presenting the intergovernmental context in which American cities operate." -- Samuel B. Stone "Managing Urban America provides a solid foundation to begin `the conversation.' It has an easy-to-read format and touches on numerous aspects of government on the local, state, and federal levels. The chapters help lead into discussions that focus on real-world examples." -- Stephen Spina
