ABOUT THIS BOOK
This unique study explores how local bureaucrats and politicians negotiate diversity, discrimination, migration, and class in the midst of many other issues that affect community cohesion. Drawing on original empirical research, Hannah Jones contends that local government workers must often occupy uncomfortable positions when managing ethical, professional, and political commitments. Ultimately, she reveals the surprising extent to which governmental power affects the lives and emotions of the people who wield it.
