Judd and Swanstrom argue that the politics of growth, the politics of governance, and enclave politics are the three imperatives that dissolve the past and present into a singular, continuous narrative.


Praised for the clarity of its writing, careful research, and distinctive theme - that urban politics in the United States has evolved as a dynamic interaction among governmental power, private actors, and a politics of identity - City Politics  remains a classic study of urban politics.
