Summary
  • "This energetic and accessible account of progressive successes and failures in a range of American cities in the 1970s and 1980s, including the author's in-depth original research on Boston and Chicago, provides an ideal gateway to the future. Brimming with insights and thoughtful commentary on political strategies, it could be used as a springboard by coming generations of activists and planners."--G. William Domhoff, Unversity of California, Santa Cruz, author of Who Rules America?
  • "While progressives are challenged in finding their voice nationally, the opposite can be said about activists in the halls of local government. Pierre Clavel's important work showcases how activists are successfully expanding the range of voices being heard in the halls of city government and winning campaigns, demonstrating that government can be more than a spectator sitting on the sidelines of economic development. This book is a breath of fresh air for anyone feeling alienated amid the current political moment."--Amy B. Dean, coauthor of A New New Deal: How Regional Activism Will Reshape the American Labor Movement
  • "Pierre Clavel's Activists in City Hall is an important history of progressivism at the city and local government level. His extensive interviews, firsthand observation, and careful use of a mostly ignored literature all make an important contribution to urban studies, political science, urban planning, and history. Clavel carefully considers the role of neighborhood organizations, university intellectuals, and progressive politicians along with the ̀growth machine, ' or usual governing coalition, that they opposed. This is a must-read book for students, scholars, and political activists."--Dick Simpson, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of Inside Urban Politics and The Struggle for Power and Influence in Cities and States
  • "Pierre Clavel has a definite idea of what makes a city progressive: a commitment to popular participation, social movements, and redistribution. In Activists in City Hall, he reflects on important themes including the complex relationship between social movements and city government, the connection between redistribution and popular participation, the role of planners and intellectuals in progressive government, and the long-term and far-reaching effects the progressive administrations of Boston and Chicago had on later governments and other cities. His insights on these topics make this an important book."--Gerald E. Frug, Louis D. Brandeis Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, author of City Making and Coauthor of City Bound
  • "Recent years have seen an increasing interest by both academics and activists in the relationships among social movements, regional organizing, and urban planning for social equity. Full of case study detail, nuanced in its approach, and offering a powerful theoretical frame that weaves together policies, politics, and power, Activists in City Hall is an important contribution to the literature on urban change and progressive planning."--Manuel Pastor Jr., University of Southern California, Coauthor of This Could Be the Start of Something Big --Book Jacket
