Description

The past 30 years have seen the weakening of the central state by processes of devolution, Europeanisation and globalisation, which have led to dramatic clashes between nation states and local authorities. Why do some cities feel the need to sidestep the state in their decision-making? And how can they do so? Bridging political geography and politics, this book gives a new perspective on the central state's weakening authority and the parallel rise of cities as political actors.

The author considers the tensions between central states and European cities, giving a new perspective to students and researchers in urban studies, geography and political science.
