Subnational Politics in the 1980s: Organization, Reorganization and Economic Development
Editors: Louis A. Picard and Raphael Zarinski
Chapter 3, Does the Federal-Unitary Dichotomy Make a Difference?: One Answer Derived from Macrocomparative Research, authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
This book brings together thirteen experts in subnational politics to examine the effects on local and regional governments of the pessimistic perception that governments are limited in their problem-solving abilities. Contributors discuss the issue of popular participation in the political decision-making process, which has led to the creation of community action groups and local and regional organizations that foster economic development. They take a hard look at the nature of relationships with other levels of government and address the problems caused by a shrinking budget.
