Abstract

During the 1960s and 1970s, no one paid much attention to the politics of local government. It was a political backwater, an administrative arm of central government without an independent ‘politics’ of its own. Local councils were assumed by many academics and policy makers to be concerned with making practical, non-political decisions, guided by the judgement of professional officers.
