Product Description


Over recent years, changes in local government have been greater and faster than ever: elected mayors and cabinets, overview and scrutiny, Best Value, Comprehensive Performance Assessment, council tax capping and reform...the pace never slackens. The fourth edition of this leading local government textbook - comprehensively revised up to and including the 2006 local elections and subsequent ministerial reshuffle - evaluates these changes and provides an accessible and informed insight into Labour's third-term agenda.

I wouldn't ordinarily review a book on a website but I have had to intervene when I saw that this book has received one star. My Doctoral research is centred on local government and I am a practitioner. From both perspectives (academic and practitioner) I can say that this book is the benchmark text on local government, and I speak as someone who has read widely on the subject for my literature review. It is the core text on many courses for a reason. It is also into it's fourth edition for a reason: it's great. I personally find the writing style very accessible and a change from the dry style adopted by many other texts on local government.
