In The Last Decade We Have Seen A Shift In Outlook From The View That Humankind, Through The Organized Structures Of Government, Can Solve The Problems Of Society And The Environment To The More Pessimistic View That There Are Limits To What Government Can Do To Solve Problems.

Publishers Description: This book brings together thirteen experts in subnational politics to examine the effects on local and regional governments of the pessimistic perception that governments are limited in their problem-solving abilities. Contributors discuss the issue of popular participation in the political decision-making process, which has led to the creation of community action groups and local and regional organizations that foster economic development. They take a hard look at the nature of relationships with other levels of government and address the problems caused by a shrinking budget.
