Street-level governments : assessing decentralization and urban services by Robert K Yin( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the study reported here was to assess the various decentralization efforts as they occurred in different services and in different cities. The study reviewed decentralization's record in terms of five outcomes: (1) Increases in the flow of information between servers and served; (2) Improvements in service officials attitudes; (3) Improvements in client attitudes; (4) Improvements in services delivered; (5) Increases in client control. The study was based on an assessment of 215 previously written case studies of decentralization, collected from published sources as well as from federal agency records. The case studies covered such innovations as police-community relations programs, team policing, neighborhood health centers, new neighborhood multiservice facilities, little city halls, ombudsmen and complaint procedures and district control of schools. The Community Action and Model Cities programs prepared the groundwork for urban decentralization. However, each of these federal programs emphasized only one of the two dimensions of decentralization. The first dimension of decentralization, coming mainly from the Community Act Program, involves a client imperative. A second, equally important dimension coming more from the Model Cities experience invokes a territorial imperative. (Author/JM)

Cities of the mind by Douglas Yates( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion is made of the nature and sources of the urban crisis, a debate which has often been called a national sport, particularly appealing to amateur humanitarians, social scientists, journalists, and embattled mayors. It is, the author claims, an intriguing controversy characterized by ingenuous or fanciful theory, provocative insights, and sharp rebuttals. The main fascination appears to be that so many people can look at the same reality and discover so many different causes and dynamics -- always with considerable conviction that one favored explanation can solve the puzzle

Political Innovation and Institution-Building: The Experience of Decentralization Experiments by Douglas Yates( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to resolve what determines the success or failure of innovations in participatory government; and, more precisely what are the dynamics of institution-building by which the ideas of participation and decentralization are implemented and enduring neighborhood institutions are established. To answer these questions, a number of decentralization experiments were examined to determine which organization structures, social conditions, and political arrangements are most conducive to successful innovation and institution -building. This inquiry has several theoretical implications: (1) it examines the nature and utility of political resources available to ordinary citizens seeking to influence their government; (2) it comments on the process of innovation (3) the inquiry addresses the problem of political development, at least as it exists in urban neighborhoods; and (4) it seeks to lay the groundwork for a theory of neighborhood problem-solving and a strategy of neighborhood development.
