But what else needs to be said about the policies and politics of urban development? To supplement prevailing theories, "The Politics of Urban Development" argues that the role of local actors in making development decisions merits closer study. Whatever the structural constraints, politics still matters.

No book assesses the Third Sector’s impact for the urban landscape as this book .

No book assesses the Third Sector’s impact for the urban landscape as this book does. Adams’s critical but fair-minded assessment of the Third Sector’s growing role encompasses four different domains―transportation, major development, schools, and affordable housing―that are rarely examined together. Carolyn T. Adams wonderfully demonstrates how metropolitan Philadelphia has been shaped by a convergence of outside interest groups and non-profit organizations.

This book examines both the politics and products of the public investment process in one of America’s largest cities. It broadens the scope of contemporary debates on the political economy of urban development to include not only large-scale redevelopment projects, but also neighborhood facilities such as schools, parks, and libraries. Showing the share of investments that went into Philadelphia’s downtown versus its residential neighborhoods from 1950 to 1980, the author challenges the widely held view that public investment patterns simply reflect political pressures from pro-development groups. Instead she shows that a city’s decision to build often hinges on the availability and the sources of investment capital.
