      We study 20th century models to the nth degree, when they are no longer adequate for, or aligned with, the multi-dimensional challenges we Governing cities book. This means ensuring that the powers, funding, and the configuration of local democratic institutions are suited to modern challenges rather than to a bygone era. The best way to follow issues you care about. Ultimately, this networked approach has begun to mirror the complexity of the challenges we face. Therefore, it is impossible to make sweeping recommendations for all countries and cities.

      The editors in their opening chapter set out a focus on governing cities based on the argument that governance in the absence of strong government can lead to urban breakdown. I recommend this book to readers from north and south, east and west. The forces of globalization gather pace but, as the authors Governing cities book this Governing cities book show with great insight, this does not mean that everywhere has to become the same. The editors and authors of this volume breathe new life into globalization and the city's response to it. This volume departs from a different set of questions and employs a novel approach in discussing them: cities in sub-Saharan Africa provide the pivot around which issues of policy and practice, planning and service delivery turn, at different scales and both from the top down as well as from the bottom up. Noveck identifies substantial potential for change in this area and encourages public thinkers and officials to be more nimble, efficient, and inclusive in their views of what constitutes knowledge.

      The report explores local revenue instruments, with a focus on property-based local taxes and user charges, as well as external revenue sources such as intergovernmental transfers, Governing cities book, public-private partnerships, and international assistance. Academics, policy makers and opinion formers from around the world will find much to interest, disturb and inspire them in this book. Urban areas are socio-economic and environmental entities that go beyond historically defined administrative borders. Our conversation has been edited for length and flow. Sometimes it may be led by a group of universities or philanthropies, or a business group or the public sector, but in almost all cases, it is networked and collaborative and it is cross-sector.
