"First published as a testament to the legacy of the concept made popular by the New Left of the 1960s, and with the perspective of the intervening decades, this book opens up the way for re-examining just what is involved in democratizing democracy. With its emphasis on citizen participation, here, presented in one volume are the best arguments for participatory democracy written by some of the most relevant contributors to the debate, both in an historic, and in a contemporary, sense." "This wide-ranging collection probes the historical roots of participatory democracy in our political culture, analyzes its application to the problems of modern society and explores the possible forms it might take on every level of society from the work place, to the community, and beyond."--Jacket

Photographs throughout the book illustrate the drama of events described in each chapter. It includes the transcript of a panel discussion organized for the fortieth anniversary, with eyewitness testimony from Norman Birnbaum, Patty Lee Parmalee, and Tom Hayden. Originally released as a bulletin of the German Historical Institute, it is being published in book form for the very first time and includes a new foreword by Dimitri Roussopoulos, a veteran activist involved on an international level in the tumult of the 1960s."--
The rise of cities : Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and other Cities by Dimitrios I Roussopoulos( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late 2000s human society entered a new urban epoch in which the majority of human beings live in cities. Whilst the city has historically been viewed as the foundation of democracy and citizenship, the geo-political spaces of modern cities are widely misunderstood despite their key role in shaping contemporary global society. How and why have cities become the command centres of the world economy? Does globalization menace cities as we know them? Are cities able to exercise democratic control and strategic choice when multinational corporate competition increasingly limits the importance of place? The Rise of Cities offers intriguing responses to these questions by analyzing how cities coalesce, develop and thrive, and how they can remake themselves for better or for worse. Examining key issues such as the parasitic relationships cities have with Nature, the webs of trade and immigration they rely on to survive, and the spatial structure of the contemporary metropolis, the contributors develop a startling outline of cities in crisis and demonstrate why the State has failed, and must fail, to end the urban crisis. These themse are explored through a variety of concrete, real-world examples of the challenges of urban politics: metropolitan governance, urban redevelopment policy, housing problems, grass roots activism and urban planning. In the background looms the spectre of neo-liberal globalization, with the development of influential world cities related to the emergence of modern telecommunications, the growth of multinational corporations and the generation of a world economy with an increased movement of cultural symbols and artifacts across national borders." --
