National-level Planning in Democratic Countries: An International Comparison of City and Regional Policy-Making by Rachelle Alterman
English | 1 Apr. 2001 | ISBN: 0853238456 | 302 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

National-level spatial planning in democratic countries has been all but ignored by researchers in urban and regional planning since the reconstruction years following World War II. Being synonymous for many with repressive regimes and coercive government practices, national-level planning also fell into some disrepute.
Civic Wars: Democracy and Public Life in the American City during the Nineteenth Century

Civic Wars: Democracy and Public Life in the American City during the Nineteenth Century by Mary P. Ryan
University of California Press; New Ed edition | November 18, 1998 | English | ISBN: 0520216601 | 394 pages | PDF | 38 MB

Mary P. Ryan traces the fate of public life and the emergence of ethnic, class, and gender conflict in the nineteenth-century city in this ambitious retelling of a key period of American political and social history. Basing her analysis on three quite different cities—New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco—Ryan illustrates how city spaces were used, understood, and fought over by a dazzling variety of social groups and political forces. She finds that the democratic exuberance America enjoyed in the 1820s and 1840s was irrevocably damaged by the Civil War. Civic life rebounded after the War but was, in Ryan's words, "less public, less democratic, and more visibly scarred by racial bigotry."
"The Limits of Altruism in Democratic Athens" by Matthew Robert Christ

"The Limits of Altruism in Democratic Athens" by Matthew Robert Christ
CamUni Press | 2012 | ISBN: 1107029775 9781107029774 | 228 pages | PDF | 6 MB

This book argues that Athenians felt little pressure as individuals to help fellow citizens whom they did not know. Democratic ideology called on citizens to refrain from harming one another rather than to engage in mutual support, and emphasized the importance of the helping relationship between citizen and city rather than among individual citizens. If the obligation of Athenians to help fellow citizens was fairly tenuous, all the more so was their responsibility to intervene to assist the peoples of other states; a distinct pragmatism prevailed in the city's decisions concerning intervention abroad.
