Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The role of private and public institutions in urban development has been one of the more recent foci of urban research in Britain. Amongst the disciplines involved, urban sociology, urban geography and political science have all made their specific contributions to the field. Urban sociologists were first to draw attention, in their concept of urban managerialism, to the allocating and mediating functions of private and (later, exclusively) public employees| in trying to avoid earlier notions of an autonomous bureaucracy, urban geography's institutional approach went half-way towards the integrative concepts of the 1980s| while political scientists have only recently begun to connect corporatism and other ''managerial'' theories of the state to urban studies
