Diffusion, Reinforcement, Geopolitics, And The Spread Of War, Benjamin A. Most, Harvey Starr Dec 1980

Diffusion, Reinforcement, Geopolitics, And The Spread Of War, Benjamin A. Most, Harvey Starr

Faculty Publications

The discussion reports the results of an examination of the possible diffusion of new war participations during the 1946-65 era.

Urban Policy: Does Political Structure Matter?, David R. Morgan, John P. Pelissero Dec 1980

Urban Policy: Does Political Structure Matter?, David R. Morgan, John P. Pelissero

Political Science: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Eleven cities with populations of 25,000 and above which significantly changed their political structure between 1948 and 1973 are compared with 11 matched control cities that made no changes. We found that over an 11-year period, variations in fiscal behavior were virtually unaffected by changes in city government structure.
