This critical engagement with urban regime theory, the most widely used theory of urban governance, draws extensively on its American foundations and reconceptualizes the approach. Providing thorough theoretical distinctions, Jonathan S. Davies also develops the concept of regime governance as a tool for evaluating regeneration partnerships in the UK.A compelling blend of rigorous theoretical argument and comprehensive empirical analysis, this text makes a substantial contribution to the scholarly debate. An interesting and original work that is suitable for courses on urban theory and urban policy, governance, policy analysis and development.
