Abstract

In Locating Localism: Statecraft, Citizenship and Democracy, Jane Wills explores the development of localism in the UK and the structures that both encourage and impede the transfer of decision-making to the neighbourhood level. While the book occasionally lacks engagement with the precise relationship between devolution and localism and the political struggles occuring within communities, Richard Berry praises this as a highly important contribution to the emerging literature on localism that offers a powerful, coherent perspective.
