Community Power in a Postreform City: Politics in New York City

Synopsis

This book examines community politics in the 1990s by focusing on New York City's community board system and suggesting that although the radical demands for community control which arose in the 1960s were never fully realized, they did result in dramatic increases in community power in cities like New York. The author analyzes the effects of this recent reemergence of community power on politics in New York. The analysis focuses on New York's community boards because they are among the most definitive examples of community empowerment in the postreform age.
