This major new reference work is an authoritative, detailed guide to subnational systems of government in advanced democracies.The Handbook offers a comparative analysis of local and regional government in a wide range of countries, discussing their histories, traditions, national and internal institutional structures, financing, competences and functions. Inter-governmental relationships, electoral systems and public participation in local administration and the governance of metropolitan areas, are also reviewed extensively. The book draws upon a wide range of official and academic sources in several languages, published and unpublished, many of which are not otherwise available in English.The first part surveys principal aspects of the subject through a cross-national comparison of Western Europe, English and French-speaking North America, Japan and Australasia. Later chapters examine individually the cases of France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, the USA, Canada and Japan. In order to facilitate comparison within a global perspective the contents of each of these chapters are organised under the same headings as those in the first part. Offering an unparalleled history of western systems of local democracy and the concepts and values that sustain them, the Handbook will be an aid to constructive thinking for politicians and administrators, as well as a comprehensive reference source for teachers, students and researchers.
International discussion of environmental management is essential not only because of the international nature of the problems concerned but also to enable workers in one country to benefit from the experience gained in another. This symposium provided an international forum at which to discuss the role of local and regional governments in environmental management. The success of future policies will depend, to a large extent, on the readiness of such local bodies to initiate, co-operate, co-ordinate and implement in this field. The book includes key papers by leading experts from Europe and the USA. Papers are grouped into three main areas: environmental requirements from various participants in the process; policy and practice; new demands on administration and management --- organisational, financial and managerial consequences. Also included are five short papers and the reports of three discussion groups.

Advances in spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution over the past several years have greatly expanded opportunities for practical applications of remote sensing data. To explore the implications of these possibilities, the NRC held a series of three workshops on different facets of remote sensing applications. This report is on the third of those workshops: the development and use of remote sensing data and information by state, local, and regional governments. The steering committee was asked to examine the opportunities, potential challenges, and policy issues associated with the application of remote sensing data in the public sector including approaches and procedures for government agencies to use such data and barriers to development and use of the applications. The resulting report is addressed primarily to non-technical managers and decisions makers at all levels of government below the federal level.
