Power and Politics in the City: Brisbane in Transition
This study of community power in Brisbane analyses the challenges posed by growth and the shifting of the balance of power from the country to the city. Consists of a series of case studies focusing on discrete policy issues and key areas, and exploring topics such as relations between state and city governments and between public and private sectors, and their impact on the Brisbane community. Caulfield is a lecturer in public administration at the University of Queensland, and Wanna is a senior lecturer in politics and public policy at Griffith University.
