In countries where one city completely dominates the national economy, to be mayor of the capital is just one step below being head of state—and more figures make this leap than is commonly appreciated.   In America's current political crisis, cities seem to matter more than ever, and they've always mattered a lot.

The political leanings of a city may not be the first thing you consider when looking for a new place to live. Yet, they should be, as our happiness in a place can be largely dependent on the beliefs of the people around us. In a discussion of his book, Convention Center Follies: Politics, Power, and Public Investment in American Cities, he notes a nationwide surge in convention center development in the past two decades amid promises of new jobs, private development, and tax revenues.

Take a deep dive into current events and the world’s most important political issues with thousands of titles on civil & human rights, economics, international relations, U.S. politics, and more.
