Redefining Urban Politics

Redefining Urban Politics V Nath THE book is a collection of 14 articles, four of which have been written by the authors themselves about the various theories on exercise of power in the cities of Anglo- America. The US, the UK and Canada. The authors are professors of political science, urban planning and policy development, geography, etc, in various universities in Anglo-America. About half of them arc from universities in the US and the rest are mainly from universities in the UK. Thus the book is devoted entirely to review of theories of exercise of power in the cities of Anglo- America. One could legitimately ask if it has any relevance to the exercise of power in the cities of other regions. The question could be answered only if there were some contributions by authors from other regions. The authors themselves recognise this limitation. They say, "In this book we are concerned primarily with urban theories that have currency in the United States and Britain, although many of the theories have relevance to other countries that is how well these theories travel" (p II).
