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.
