Politics of Arlington, Texas: An Era of Continuity and GrowthBy
"Politics of Arlington, Texas," is a case study of the politics of a booming mid-size American city. Relying on interviews, city documents, and media records, Allan Saxe examines Arlington from the post-World War II years to the end f the millennium. What he finds is an era of sweeping change in America, Arlington enjoyed steady growth by maintaining essentially the same economic goals. Ironically, the pro-growth initiatives that the establishment had always favored helped to bring about the establishment's demise. Saxe offers an incisive analysis of the personalities, policies, and elections that have helped to shape this Texas community for more than half a century.
