City-county separation is a form of governance in which rural and urban areas are formally separated. Although these areas were once thought to be distinct because of their diverse sets of values economies labour trends and ways of life more recently and in response to regional growth govern- ments have begun to design institutions that link the city to surrounding rural governments in order to provide greater policy and service continuity to the region. Detailing the development of municipal institutions the original logic behind the city-county separation and the eventual shift in institutional and municipal organization The Boundary Bargain demonstrates that urban and rural areas have always had a reciprocal relationship and that both play an important role in the strength of the national economy and the broader local community. Focusing on three case studies of separated cities and their coun- ties that still retain strict city-county separation London Guelph and Barrie Zachary Spicer reveals how this policy works what problems it poses and examines the best practices for addressing growth development and sprawl from a regional perspective. Highlighting the dangers of municipal institutions that are too rigid to modernize The Boundary Bargain provides a strong historical account of city-county separation that will guide governments from within and beyond Ontario on how to better manage growth. Zachary Spicer is assistant professor of political science at Brock University. Honoric rewards are all about status and illustrate status processes in a way that few other social phenomena do. Why do we have so many honoric awards and prizes Although they are a major feature of modern societies they have received little scholarly attention. Samuel Clark argues that answering this question requires a separate his- torical analysis of different awards and prizes. He presents a comprehensive explanation of the origins and evolution of state honours in the British Isles France and the Low Countries. Examining cultural social and political changes that led to the massive growth in state honours and shaped their characteristics Distributing Status also demonstrates their functions as in- struments of cultural power collective power disciplinary power and status power. Clark supports his conclusions with a cross-cultural statistical analy- sis of twenty societies. Lucid and logical Distributing Status explicates an important historical change in Western Europe while at the same time contributing to several bodies of sociological literature including evolutionary theory theories of collective action writings on discipline in modern societies and studies of status processes. Samuel Clark is professor emeritus of sociology at Western University and author of State and Status The Rise of the State and Aristocratic Power in Western Europe. 2 8 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 6 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S May 2016 978-0-7735-4684-4 49.95A 49.95A 35.00 cloth 6 x 9 520pp 51 tables 7 diagrams colour section Ebook available S P E C I F I C AT I O N S McGill-Queens Studies in Urban Governance June 2016 978-0-7735-4749-0 27.95A 27.95A 18.99 paper 978-0-7735-4748-3 100.00S 100.00S 69.00 cloth 6 x 9 200pp 6 maps 12 tables Ebook available The Boundary Bargain Growth Development and the Future of City-County Separation zachary spicer The interplay of institutions and urban sprawl collide in once-rural Ontario.
