The articles about municipal goverment contained in the third volume include discussions of how rapid urbanization in the early nineteenth century produced a chain reaction, creating first the need for new political institutions, then the rise of machine politics, and, finally, reform movements that designed, advocated, and implemented new forms of government. Volume 3 also includes articles that consider the nature of intergovernmental relations at the end of the twentieth century and the connections between the governments of cities and the governments of regions surrounding them - localities, states, and the nation." - Series Introduction. ; American Cities: A Collection of Essays; Ex-Library; Vol. 3; xvii, 507 pages.
