Local Government in the New Europe
The editor's highly-placed and successful Territory and Administration in Europe (1989) analysed and described the then current systems and was a landmark in local government studies. Obviously now, a completely new study is required and Professor Bennett has responded to this need with an entirely new framework and a distinguished group of contributors. The book blends theoretical perspectives into up-to-date and authoritative case studies to produce a comprehensive study of how local government in Europe's countries, regions, Lander, provinces, departments, communes, municipalities, cities, towns and villages works.
