Synopsis: St. Louis is a rarity in that it's metropolitan area is split not only into the usual political parties, but into a large number of political entities as well. Citizens here distrust government but seem to love governments. The book begins with the split between the City and County of St. Louis in 1876 and goes on to how St. Louis went from one dominant government, the City of St. Louis, to more than 300 in the region today. It also touches on the ramifications of having that many individual municipalities, some tiny and some huge. This book explores the suburban explosion, the rise of regional districts, and the outlook for the future. We have rejected being like someone else and, instead, decided to be distinctively St. Louis: fragmented by design.
