'Political theorist Benjamin Barber's latest book is more than just theory. Networked governance by the world's cities is actually happening, and "If Mayors Ruled the World" is the book of the movement. Once again, Barber is ahead of the curve.' --Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper
'Mayors around the world tend to be pragmatists and problem-solvers, not partisans. They get things done, often after national governments fall short. Benjamin Barber provides a provocative look at how cities can and do lead from the front in addressing the most pressing issues of our time.' --Michael R. Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City
