A group of noted scholars of U.S. local government and a group of leading local government administrators convened at the Hansell Symposium sponsored by the University of Kansas and ICMA to honor ICMA executive director William H. Hansell on the eve of his retirement. The papers presented there, together with thoughtful responses by practicing managers, are brought together in a volume that represents the state of the art of academic research into local government and the management profession.Coverage includes the democratic and political context of local government administration; the changing forms of American cities; the settings, roles and responsibilities of local government leaders in cities and counties; and prospects for the future of local government management. This book is an ideal textbook and a valuable addition to the library of every professional city or county manager.
