Who governs? : democracy and power in an American city

Robert A. Dahl

In this now-classic work, one of the most celebrated political scientists of the twentieth century offers a powerful interpretation of the location of political power in American urban communities. For this new edition, Robert A. Dahl has written a new Preface in which he reflects on Who Governs? more than four decades after its original publication. And in a new Foreword, Douglas W. Rae offers an assessment of Dahl's achievement in this, Dahl's greatest and most influential book. "Dahl is never dogmatic, and never imagines that the world stands still to accommodate either the democratic ideal or his own pluralistic theory of city politics ...Who Governs? is Dahl's liveliest and most remarkable book."-Douglas W. Rae, from the Foreword Robert A. Dahl is Sterling Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Yale University and past president of the American Political Science Association. He is the author of numerous books, including How Democratic Is the American Constitution?, On Democracy and Democracy and Its Critics, all available from Yale University Press.
