The Metropolitan Chase

New or Used: $213.79
Unique in perspective, this handbook focuses on the core aspects of metropolitanism--giving readers what they need to be knowledgeable and effective metropolitan citizens. It provides cutting-edge insights into the nature and affects of two simultaneous contests--the competition among several hundred metropolitan regions and the competition with any single metropolitan area--and thus serves as an "owner's manual" for participating in both aspects of the metropolitan chase within the United States. Includes an "Internet Guide to Metropolitan Regions, Governance, and Policies," and essential information on metropolitan areas with populations over one million. Distinguishing characteristics of the new Metropolitan Region; The key players (The Public Sector, The Business Sector, The Nonprofit Sector, The Civic Sphere); The External Chase (competition "among" metros--Economic Development; Transportation; Education; Arts, Entertainment, and Tourism); The Internal Chase (competition "within" metros--Protecting People and Property; Protecting Health and the Environment; Providing Housing; Providing Recreation, Parks, and Open Space; Taxes). For anyone interested in Urban Politics, Metropolitan Politics, Urban Planning, Urban Affairs, and Local Government.
