Gerald Frug and David Barron’s City Bound: How States Stifle Urban Innovation is a compelling examination of the hidden legal architecture that shapes urban governance. This Review, after outlining Frug and Barron’s claims about the mottled landscape of state empowerment and disempowerment of local governments, argues that some local governments struggle to change that state-created framework, forging partnerships, finding alternative sources of authority, and bending existing tools to new tasks - entrepreneurial leaps in the face of state bounds.
