In post-Iron Curtain Europe, local government will assume unparallelled importance. Winin the EC, the principle of subsidiarity emphasizes the local arena as the first appropriate level for decision making while in the former communist emergent democracies, systems of local administration have to be quickly and effectively introduced to replace the discredited hierarchical centralized systems of the past. The editor's highly-praised "Territory and Administration in Europe" (1989) analyzed and described the then current systems and was a landmark in local government studies. Professor Bennet has now responded to the need for a new study with a new framework and distinguished group of contributors. The book blends theoretical perspectives into up-to-date case studies to produce a comprehensive study of how local government in Europe's countries, regions, Laender, provinces, departments, communes, municipalities, cities, towns and villages work. A particular feature of the book is concerned with restructuring and change in Eastern Europe, particularly emphasizing financial questions.
