A number of other places in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America experienced the sorts of government reform that happened in the cities with major representation in this collection. It is our intent to get a selection of materials from the main cities in such places: Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver in Canada; Bologna and other Italian places, and selected Latin American cities.
Madison, Wisconsin is a notable U.S. case for which we have minor coverage, but its longtime progressive mayor, Paul Soglin, and current progressive, David Cieslowitz, require a further effort.
There is some published work on these places: Max Jaggi et al, “Red Bologna” (1977) was a well known early example; Daniel Chavez and Benjamin Goldfrank, eds., “The Left in the City” (2004) is a recent review of developments in Latin America. On Canada, see Warren Magnusson, “The Search for Political Space: Globalization, Social Movements, and the Urban Political Experience” (1996).
