By Sound Selector - Published on Amazon.com
One of my favorite things about this book: a chapter that explains how US cities were forced to shift their budget priorities in a very similar way to structural adjustment programs in the global south (it was the bond rating agencies instead of the IMF/World Bank). In general the book is a good read for undergraduates with some guidance. Its also great for people who have read a bunch of urban political economy because Hackworth provides thoughtful syntheses of the theories that are out there, and then goes on to discuss his take through case studies.
