Managing Local Government: Cases in Decision Making: Replacing the Police Chief describes the dilemma of a manager whose attempt to administer in accordance with the tenets of professionalism runs into strong opposition from a politically influential family. This e-book also shows council-manager government in action, facing one of the most severe tests that can confront this form of government, and describes precisely how council-manager government works at its best, making it the most commonly used form of government in all but the nation's smallest and very largest cities, and in a growing number of counties as well.
