Democracy And Power In An American City by Robert Dahl

This seminal work in political science uses a case study of New Haven, Connecticut, to explore the dynamics of power and democracy within an American city. The book examines the complex networks of political influence, the role of socioeconomic factors, and the distribution of power among different groups and individuals. It challenges the notion of a monolithic power structure, instead revealing a pluralistic system where multiple centers of power interact and compete, shaping the democratic process. The analysis provides insights into how local democracy functions in practice and raises questions about the effectiveness and equity of governance in urban settings.
