"En mars 2014, les scrutins municipaux ont donné lieu à des changements électoraux significatifs, tout en révélant la résistance de certaines pratiques et règles du jeu politiques. L'impact médiatique de la défaite de la gauche (et en particulier du Parti socialiste) sur un terrain local qui faisait sa force et de la conquête symbolique de villes par le FN a occulté d'autres enjeux plus profonds. Le propos de cet ouvrage est, en s'appuyant sur des enquêtes fouillées, réalisées à l'occasion de ces élections sur une variété de terrains locaux, de contribuer à éclairer deux axes problématiques transversaux : la question des changements électoraux et du renouvellement de l'offre politique, articulée aux formes d'inertie révélées par la puissance des mécanismes d'ancrage territorial et de professionnalisation politique ; la question du travail politique en campagne, associée aux phénomènes de croyances qui structurent les pratiques politiques."--Page 4 of cover.

In The Cities on the Hill, Thomas Ogorzalek argues that the answer lies not in the sectional divide, but in the urban-rural divide. To that end, he focuses on how the latter divide shaped the trajectory and geography of partisan politics in America, and locates its roots in the New Deal.

"Across the world's most industrialized economies, the financial crisis of 2007 caused a contraction of state budgets and stimulated attempts to reform debt-burdened governments.

The contributors empirically detail the restructuring that is taking place across the United States, its underlying logics, its local impacts and the ongoing processes of challenge and resistance that influences how it is shaping the lives of citizens. The new American political economy, it is argued, needs to be understood as composed of a mosaic of urban experiences that both build upon a differentiated foundation and creates new divergences. As state reforms continue to interact with this diverse urban political economy of the United States, this collection provides a...survey on how postcrisis convergences and divergences in urban economies and urban politics have laid the foundations for the new political geography of the United States."-- Back cover.

This book discusses the evolution of the third tier of the Indian federal system, with a focus on rural local governance (commonly known as Panchayati Raj) against the backdrop of important theoretical and empirical literature on the relevance and effectiveness of service delivery in the decentralized system. It evaluates the quintessence of the functioning of the Panchayati Raj in the past two decades of its existence. This pioneering book also discusses the treatment of the third-tier government in the inter-governmental fiscal transfer framework and the delineation of the unique institution of local self-government in the Northeastern Indian States. In the light of the loosely evolved fiscal relations between three levels of government, it has been observed that local self-governments in the bottom tier have not been truly empowered yet. The book argues in favor of integrating the third-tier government into the Indian federal system and suggests how this could be achieved.

As recently as the early 1960s, Latinos were almost totally excluded from city politics. This makes the rise of Latino mayors in the past three decades a remarkable American story-one that explains ethnic succession, changing urban demography, and political contexts. The vibrant collection Latino Mayors features case studies of eleven Latino mayors in six American cities: San Antonio, Los Angeles, Denver, Hartford, Miami, and Providence.The editors and contributors analyze Latino mayors for their governing styles and policies. They describe how candidates shaped race, class, and economic issues-particularly in deracialized campaigns. Latino Mayors also addresses coalition politics, political incorporation, and how community groups operate, as well as the challenges these pioneers have faced in office from political tensions and governance issues that sometimes even harm Latinos. Ultimately, Latino Mayors charts the performances, successes, and failures of these elected officials to represent their constituents in a changing economic and urban environment.Contributors include: Stefanie Chambers, Carlos E. Cuellar, Emily M. Farris, Maria Ilcheva, Robert Preuhs, Heywood T. Sanders, Ellen Shiau, and the editors.

In recent years, authoritarian states in the Middle East and North Africa have faced increasing international pressure to decentralize political power. Decentralization is presented as a panacea that will foster good governance and civil society, helping citizens procure basic services and fight corruption. Two of these states, Jordan and Morocco, are monarchies with elected parliaments and recent experiences of liberalization. Morocco began devolving certain responsibilities to municipal councils decades ago, while Jordan has consistently followed a path of greater centralization. Their experiences test such assumptions about the benefits of localism. Janine A. Clark examines why Morocco decentralized while Jordan did not and evaluates the impact of their divergent paths, ultimately explaining how authoritarian regimes can use decentralization reforms to consolidate power. Local Politics in Jordan and Morocco argues that decentralization is a tactic authoritarian regimes employ based on their coalition strategies to expand their base of support and strengthen patron-client ties. Clark analyzes the opportunities that decentralization presents to local actors to pursue their interests and lays out how municipal-level figures find ways to use reforms to their advantage. In Morocco, decentralization has resulted not in greater political inclusivity or improved services, but rather in the entrenchment of pro-regime elites in power. The main Islamist political party has also taken advantage of these reforms. In Jordan, decentralization would undermine the networks that benefit elites and their supporters. Based on extensive fieldwork, Local Politics in Jordan and Morocco is an important contribution to Middle East studies and political science that challenges our understanding of authoritarian regimes' survival strategies and resilience.

Can autocrats establish representative subnational governments? And which strategies of manipulation are available if they would like to reduce the uncertainty caused by introducing political decentralisation? In the wake of local government reforms, several states across the world have introduced legislation that provides for subnational elections. This does not mean that representative subnational governments in these countries are all of a certain standard. Political decentralisation should not be confused with democratisation, as the process is likely to be manipulated in ways that do not produce meaningful avenues for political participation and contestation locally.ã Using examples from Africa, Lovise Aalen and Ragnhild L. Muriaas propose five requirements for representative subnational governments and four strategies that national governments might use to manipulate the outcome of political decentralisation. The case studies of Ethiopia, Malawi, South Africa, and Uganda illustrate why autocrats sometimes are more open to competition at the subnational level than democrats. Manipulating Political Decentralisation provides a new conceptual tool to assess representative subnational governments' quality, aiding us to build theories on the consequences of political decentralisation on democratisation.

A monarch is usually born, a member of parliament or a president is usually elected, but a regional leader in China is usually orchestrated to replace his or her predecessor through an opaque process and for reasons not normally made public. The professional trajectories of Chinese regional leaders are mysterious in many ways. Their promotions and demotions can be "predictable" in terms of their age, gender, nationality, education, factions, and previous engagements in the political system. Yet, speaking of their capability, performance, opportunities and arrangements, their future can also be "unexpected". Such arrangements are always originated from the Organization (zuzhi) which represents the Chinese Communist Party. What are the factors the organization considers in order to make its final decisions on nominating and appointing a regional leader? Today's regional leaders of China will very likely become the central leaders of China in the future. By making an empirical analysis of Chinese regional leaders' political mobility, Qiao establishes a descriptive political mobility model that reveals leadership trajectories in Chinese politics.

"Du milieu des années 1960 à la fin des années 1970, Louviers, cité de Normandie qui avait été le fief de Pierre Mendès France, a connu une vie politique et citoyenne intense, étonnante. "L'imagination était au pouvoir" titre Le Nouvel Observateur en 1969, en découvrant les idées et les réalisations d'un jeune maire médecin. Sept ans plus tard, lorsque le comité d'action de gauche local conquiert la municipalité, c'est au nom de "Rendre le pouvoir aux citoyens" et d'"Information Participation Contrôle". L'enquête menée par Hélène Hatzfeld dans les archives et auprès des acteurs de l'époque met à nu les continuités et les transformations d'un projet d'émancipation sociale, politique et humaine qui rebondit d'une décennie à l'autre, jusqu'à aujourd'hui. Une bascule s'opère : les horizons révolutionnaires font place à l'invention d'alternatives ; le mythe d'une municipalité autogestionnaire se construit et se diffuse. Par la diversité de ses emprunts, par l'exercice des pouvoirs et la subversion des institutions, l'histoire de Louviers est révélatrice d'une généalogie complexe de la démocratie participative. Débats, espoirs, désenchantements et conflits sont ici minutieusement décryptés, questionnés et toujours remis en contexte. Louviers est un terrain d'expérimentation de possibles qui, tout en appartenant à l'imaginaire d'une époque, trouvent un écho dans les mobilisations et les attentes de notre début de XXe siècle."--Page 4 of cover.
