Why are some cities going broke while others prosper? This study of the failures and successes of city management offers new insights into how to manage cities effectively in today's economic climate. Managing Cities in Austerity fills a major gap in the literature on urban policy-making and comparative public policy. The product of one of the largest comparative social science research projects ever undertaken, the Fiscal Austerity and Urban Innovation project, it maintains a genuinely comparative approach. An international team of authors applies a coherent set of concepts about fiscal austerity to over 2,500 local governments in ten Western countries. Most significantly, survey and hard fiscal data are merged not only at city but at national level.
