About the Author

Dennis R. Judd is Professor and Acting Head of the Department of Political Science, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois, Chicago, USA. Annika Marlen Hinze is Assistant Professor of Political Science and Director of the Urban Studies Program at Fordham University, USA.


"The 10th edition of City Politics is a masterful continuation and expansion of the premier textbook about the evolution and contemporary state of urban America. Judd and Hinze vividly capture the changing interplay of private power, public action, and group identity in the development of the nation's cities and suburbs. This edition's well-crafted chapters bring urban politics to life in ways that enable students as well as advanced readers to understand the past and to appreciate the complexity of current issues dividing America today. It is a winner - again!"

- Paul Kantor, Fordham University, USA

"City Politics is an indispensable textbook on urban politics in America. American cities are characterized by remarkable economic dynamism, but also by deep social divisions. Taking a historical approach, the book clearly shows how politics has shaped and reproduced these enduring hallmarks of the American city. With lively, accessible writing and thorough treatment of key current issues, this text is perfectly suited for a wide range of introductory urban studies courses."

- Martin Horak, University of Western Ontario, Canada

"In this important new edition of City Politics, Judd and Hinze assemble an interdisciplinary group of scholars who contextualize the historical importance and current day realities of urban centers in America. In doing so, they assist us in better understanding the local constraints, varying waves of immigration, the ebb and flow of city fortunes, resurging racial tensions, and the effects of deindustrialization and globalization processes. City Politics also helps us process the complex relationship between local, state, and federal institutions and their effects on the lives of ordinary citizens. As growing inequality continues to affect so many facets of American life and its citizenry, City Politics continues to be a necessary text for a broad audience interested in solutions to ingrained inequities."

- Christina Greer, Fordham University, USA
