The monograph has been written on the basis of the empirical research on governance in fi ve Russian towns conducted in 20112015. The book studies the key aspects of relations of power in local communities, including confi guration and hierarchy of the main actors in urban communities, the role of regional actors in the space of local politics, the relationship between representative and executive structures of municipal government, interactions and coalitions between local political actors, and urban regimes in local communities. The research topic and structure follow the logic of urban regime analysis, which became the most popular way of studying governance in local communities. The main bulk of information was collected by the means of in-depth interviews with infl uential urban and regional actors directly involved in urban politics. The book is designed for political and social scientists as well as for those interested in the issues of governance and urban politics.
