Cities and Complexity: Making Intergovernmental Decisions
By Karen Stromme Christensen
Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning

This book explores the mismatch between the assumptions of planning and the actual operations of the intergovernmental system. Basing her work both on empirical research and personal experience in complex governmental agencies, Christensen presents a new theory of the underlying structure and dynamics of the U.S. intergovernmental system.
