Offering case studies of financial management in numerous American cities over a period of enormous growth and change, Irene Rubin explores the historical context of municipal budgeting in the United States and the political environment that conditions reform and problem solving at the local level.

Book News
Centering on six case studies, describes two significant stages of reform in municipal budgeting, from the post-Civil War period to the Great Depression years; and the modern period from the 1950s through the 1990s. Draws from historical documents and extensive personal interviews with people involved in board-of-estimate, council-manager, and strong-mayor forms of city government.
