By James R. Bowers, Wilbur C. Rich. This book is intended for both scholarly and student audiences. The dominant trend is to present in-depth case studies of single mayors (. Martin Gruberg's Case Study in U. S. Urban Leadership and Wilbur Rich's Coleman Young and Detroit Politics); concentrate disproportionately on big-city mayors (. Leonard Ruchelman's Big City Mayors: The Crisis in Urban Politics); or explore primarily.

ISBN: 978-1-55587-895-5. Each study provides a brief background sketch of the case city, places the mayor's leadership style and skills within a conceptual framework, illustrates the mayor's approach to a specific urban issue (. education, crime, economic development, the political incorporation of minorities), and discusses the effectiveness of that approach.
