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, expands upon the concept of e-government, and thoroughly updates all data and scholarship. The authors also integrate the Modern Public Management model and new case studies with a global perspective as they examine the management of international cities.
