AUTHOR

Frug, Gerald E.

SUMMARY

"Gerald Frug persuasively shows how the current legal powers and divided jurisdictions of municipalities in America reproduce privileges and threaten the solidarity that strong democracy requires. Frug does not stop with critique, however, but also boldly offers an alternative vision of regionally cooperating cities that support the well-being of all their inhabitants. The argument ofCity Makingis both rigorous and inspiring."--Iris M. Young, author ofJustice and the Politics of DifferenceandIntersecting Voices: Dilemmas of Gender, Political Philosophy, and Policy"This is an innovative book by one of America's leading legal scholars. Frug creates a set of legal and policy frameworks for cities to practice themselves, rather than have imposed from outside. He has found a way to talk about decentralization that makes sense for our time. . . . I admire the clarity and precision with which the author writes."--Richard Sennett, author ofFlesh and Stone: The Body and the City in Western Civilization"Frug writes with authority and complete mastery of his subject matter, as well as with moving moral conviction. His proposals are bold and unexpected yet well bolstered by the force of his arguments and the scope of his historical and theoretical discussion. This is an excellent and important book. Very few works published in recent years deserve to be placed in the company of Lewis Mumford's classicThe City in History. Frug's book is one of those few."--Richard T. Ford, Stanford UniversityFrug, Gerald E. is the author of 'City Making Building Communities Without Building Walls', published 2001 under ISBN 9780691007427 and ISBN 069100742X.
