Exciting news – my new book, Negotiating cohesion, inequality and change: Uncomfortable positions in local government is now in production at The Policy Press! It’s already being advertised by the University of Chicago Press, and should be available in September 2013.
Here’s the blurb from the US distributor’s site:
‘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. Based 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.’
They make it sound quite good, don’t they?
