THEORIES OF URBAN POLITICS, J. S. Davies, D. L. Imbroscio, eds., Sage, 2009
Published in 1995, the first edition of Theories of urban politics, edited by professors David Judge, Gerry Stoker and Hal Wolman, was a huge success and a landmark for urban studies. It has inspired thousands of readers, no doubt encouraging many bright scholars to embark on careers in urban political research. That collection still resonates 13 years later and contemporary scholars would do well to return to it time and again. Yet, urban politics is a fast moving field and soon enough, the original editors realized that a second edition was required. Fortuitously for us, they did not have time to fulfill the task themselves and graciously entrusted this second edition to the current editors. We owe them a debt of gratitude and hope that they, and all the readers who pick up the volume, are pleased with the outcome.
