In this unique contributed volume that features chapters written by top scholars paired with practitioner responses, students can see just how much the landscape of intergovernmental relations has evolved in recent years, with diminishing vertical flows of resources, and increased horizontal flows in the form of cross-jurisdictional and interlocal collaboration.

Government at all levels must respond to increasing demands in both of these dimensions giving these contributors plenty to say about the future of intergovernmental management in such areas as:

the changing role of managers,; disaster response,; social welfare spending,; cross-boundary management,; regional public-private partnerships, and; sustainable cities.

Contributors include Robert Agranoff, J. Edwin Benton, Beverly A. Cigler, Brian K. Collins, Mauricio Covarrubias, Raymond W. Cox II, John Kincaid, Christopher Koliba, William Lester, David Y. Miller, Beryl A. Radin, Juan M. Romero, and Eric S. Zeemering.
