The Urban Agenda


Acquiring Editor: Danny Nasset
Series Editor: Michael A. Pagano

The Urban Agenda series takes up the most urgent issues confronting mayors, legislators, city planners, and the scholars who advise them.  Volume contributors include elected officials, key people in city administrations, and nationally recognized experts.  Each volume will explore the different ways different cities reconcile city government with city politics to address multiple needs with limited resources.  In each volume, government and academic experts examine what has worked--and not worked--to enable cities to deal with the problems that beset them.
