Managing Local Government: Cases in Effectiveness: Promoting the Community's Future: Race, Politics, and Low-income Housing focuses on a city administrator with a major crisis on his hands. The state's medical school, a major employer in the city, is under pressure to expand to a new satellite location in another part of the state. To keep the school in town, the city administrator worked out a plan to sell the medical school a large public-housing project so it could have the land to expand. This e-book highlights an economic development plan that has become the centerpiece of a prominent racial controversy.
