11. URBST 105: Urban Politics

Contact:Leonard Rodberg
Abstract:This course examines the governance of US cities, especially New York City. It
explores the historical development of governmental structures, political
parties, machine politics and reform movements in US cities. Theories of power
in the urban setting and the role of advocacy groups, ethnic organizations,
business, labor, and other interest and activist groups will be discussed.

General Education Requirements: This course fulfills two general education
requirements. Through its discussion of urban studies methods and techniques
for studying social systems and the relationship of urban studies to other
disciplines, this course fulfills the “Analyzing Social Structures” Area of
Knowledge requirement. Because this course engages in discussions of the
American political system, social values and attitudes toward government and
society, and the role of urban residents in shaping those institutions and
values, it fulfills the “United States” Context of Experience requirement.
