An in-depth exploration of the politics of regional urban development, contrasting the United States with the countries of Western Europe.

"Offers an encompassing, empirically well-grounded and theoretically sophisticated account of the distinctiveness of the American (and Western European) politics of urban and regional development and is required reading for anyone interested in this field of study."—International Journal of Urban and Regional Research

"This well-argued position accentuates the localism of the American system compared with the broader concerns that dominate a national office. Highly recommended"—Choice

"The product of many years of research, theoretical and political engagement. No one but this author could have written this book, drawing on a literature that stretches back through the last quarter of a century and reviewing the urban experience across the same period and longer."—Allan Cochrane, author of Understanding Urban Policy: A Critical Approach
