Abstract or Description

Richard S Grayson suggests that in making democratic localism work, the UK could look more at the United States' radically decentralised system. Using the example of Newark's pioneering mayor Cory Booker, he argues that strong elected mayors can bring about significant change, even in difficult circumstances.
