MEDIA REVIEWS

"Urban governments in the United States contract out services more than do governments in any other country. This book fills a significant vacuum by reviewing and evaluating an impressive amount of empirical data on the topic. It is an excellent volume for students of urban studies and practitioners of urban affairs, combining, as it does, thoughtfulness and insight." - Nicholas L. Henry, Georgia Southern University

"This book is easy to read and user-friendly, while at the same time rigorously researched. Greene treats the 'politics of privatization' in an intelligent and even-handed manner, giving credit to both sides of the argument while forming his own conclusions based on the evidence." - Michael E. Milakovich, University of Miami
