Governing the City: Challenges and Options for New York

Excerpt

The purpose of this volume is to analyze the most crucial challenges facing large American cities and to explore the options available for meeting those challenges. The papers were all written especially for this publication in conjunction with a conference sponsored jointly by the Academy of Political Science and the Urban Center of Columbia University.

Neither the Academy, the Center, nor the editors necessarily agree, of course, with the diagnoses or prescriptions contained in the individual papers. The editors vouch only for the competency and the credentials of the persons who wrote them. The views expressed by the authors, in turn, are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of the agencies or institutions with which they are affiliated.

On behalf of the Academy of Political Science, we wish to thank the Urban Center at Columbia University for financial support that made the conference and this publication possible. We also wish to thank the following directors of the Academy who participated and chaired various sessions of the conference: Harold A. Stevens, presiding justice, Appellate Division of the Supreme Court; Charles Preusse of Whitman, Ransom, and Coulson; John A. Perkins, chairman of the board of Dun and Bradstreet; and John V. Connorton, executive vice president of the Greater New York Hospital Association.
