About this book

Introduction

Written by experts from all over Europe, this book provides an overview of issues and developments in European local government and in-depth analysis of its changing status, functions, management and control in each of the main countries. 'Local Government in Europe' is a stimulating and thought-provoking book, well produced and attractively presented by the publishers, which adds to the incentive to read it rather than just buy it and shelve it for future use'.
