American metropolitan areas today are divided into neighborhoods of privilege and poverty often along lines of ethnicity and race City residents traveling through these neighborhoods move from feeling at home to feeling like tourists to feeling so out of place they fear for their security As Gerald Frug shows this divided and inhospitable urban landscape is not simply the result of individual choices about where to live or start a business It is the product of government policies and in particular the policies embedded in legal rules A Harvard law professor and leading expert on urban affairs Frug presents the first ever analysis of how legal rules shape modern cities and outlines a set of alternatives to bring down the walls that now keep city dwellers apart br br br Frug begins by describing how American law treats cities as subdivisions of states and shows how this arrangement has encouraged the separation of metropolitan residents into different sometimes hostile groups He explains in clear accessible language the divisive impact of rules about zoning redevelopment land use and the organization of such city services as education and policing He pays special attention to the underlying role of anxiety about strangers the widespread desire for good schools and the pervasive fear of crime Ultimately Frug calls for replacing the current legal definition of cities with an alternative based on what he calls community building an alternative that gives cities within the same metropolitan region incentives to forge closer links with each other br br br An incisive study of the legal roots of today s urban problems i City Making i is also an optimistic and compelling blueprint for enabling American cities once again to embrace their historic role of helping people reach an accommodation with those who live in the same geographic area no matter how dissimilar they are, This law school casebook focuses on the advantages and difficulties involved in decentralizing power to cities the city state and city federal relationships the city suburb divide including the topics of sprawl and regionalism and the structure of city government itself issues like taxation service delivery and voting The casebook combines case law with extensive excerpts from the urban studies literature including history political science sociology and planning The new edition will update existing topics and will add material on important new issues most notably immigration It will also include for the first time readings on comparative and international local government law, No description available, Many major American cities are defying the conventional wisdom that suburbs are the communities of the future But as these urban centers prosper they increasingly confront significant constraints In em City Bound em Gerald E Frug and David J Barron address these limits in a new way Based on a study of the differing legal structures of Boston New York Atlanta Chicago Denver San Francisco and Seattle City Bound explores how state law determines what cities can and cannot do to raise revenue control land use and improve city schools br br Frug and Barron show that state law can make it much easier for cities to pursue a global city or a tourist city agenda than to respond to the needs of middle class residents or to pursue regional alliances But they also explain that state law is often so outdated and so rooted in an unjustified distrust of local decision making that the legal process makes it hard for successful cities to develop and implement any coherent vision of their future Their book calls not for local autonomy but for a new structure of state local relations that would enable cities to take the lead in charting the future course of urban development It should be of interest to everyone who cares about the future of American cities whether political scientists planners architects lawyers or simply citizens
