The “explosion” of the American metropolis—proliferating internal structures and reaching beyond its boundaries to involve suburban areas—is a major problem of our time. This volume is part of the Government in Metropolitan Areas Project, which will serve as an invaluable complement to specific regional studies by concentrating on the fundamental questions of government that are posed by detailed analysis of urban conditions.
The Federal Government and Metropolitan Areas focuses upon the problem of Federal programs in urban areas including housing, highways, airports, military installations, water, and sewage. It analyzes the factors which interfere with Federal recognition of metropolitan needs, and suggests ways in which Federal officials may both give and receive information and assistance.
