This is one of a series of books on the forces that shape metropolitan areas. In particular, the series has to do with the forces that shape the largest and most complex metropolitan area in the United States, a 22-county expanse which takes in parts of three states but which, for convenience, we have termed the New York Metropolitan Region. The present volume deals with the impact of local government programs and the political processes which underlie the pattern of urban development. As such it adds the dimension of political science to the Study, though obviously it does not treat the party politics of the Region. Rather, it focuses on those public activities which seem most likely to affect the distribution of firms and households throughout the Region. / $c Foreword, Edward S. Mason.
