Mayors and Schools Minority Voices and Democratic Tensions in Urban Education Press Reviews

I believe that Chambers' book will make a tremendous contribution to the current and future debates about urban school reform. The focus on two important US cities will make it a must read for those interested in urban politics. The focus on minority incorporation will draw readers interested in race and American politics. Finally, Chambers' focus on urban school reform will make this book of interest to those who care about the state of America's urban school systems. Marion Orr, Department of Political Science, Brown University Timely and nuanced...Chambers' book is notable for its attention to historical context and its balanced presentation of competing evidence.
