about

This timely book is the first to take a close historical look at Ken Livingstone s London. It examines the development of London governance from the demise of the Greater London Council to the establishment of the Greater London Authority. The authors investigate the working of Mayor and Assembly, unravel the underlying politics of London and explore policy debates about transport, crime, and economic development. Finally they pose a question of key importance, not just to Londoners, but also to those interested in urban governancethroughout the world: to what extent can the creation of new institutions and instruments of government give a major city the sense of being a political community?

Editorial Reviews

"Governing London is an important and required addition to any specialist's library. Its analysis concepts and tangible examples resonate beyond London . . . . Most of all, it is a must-read for any bureaucrat charged with recommending governance redesign of local government."-- Comptes Rendus
