Water and Politics: Clientelism and Reform in Urban Mexico (Hardback)Veronica Maria Sol Herrera (author)
- We can order this
When do politicians forgo the clientelistic manipulation of water services and invest in programmatic and universal service provision? Water and Politics finds that middle-class and industrial elites play an important role in generating pressure for public service reforms. Based on extensive field research and combining process tracing with a subnational comparative analysis of eight Mexican cities, Water and Politics constructs a framework for understanding the construction of universal service provision in these weak institutional settings.

""This fascinating and resonant study makes important contributions to the comparative politics of developing countries as well as to normative debates about the possibilities for better governance of public services there. Politics at the urban scale has been pivotal for effective reform in these settings. This book casts new light on how and why."" - Jeffrey Sellers, University of Southern California
