Excerpt from A Bibliography of Municipal Government in the United States
A Bibliography of municipal government has been much needed for a long time by teachers, librarians and city officials. It is now nearly fifteen years since Professor Robert C. Brooks issued the second edition of his Bibliography of Municipal Affairs and City Conditions - a most useful handbook in its day. In the interval, however, there has been a prodigious output of publications relating to this general field. No one can hope to keep pace with it all. To attempt a complete catalogue would be a waste of time and printer's ink, since much of the material, most of it in fact, has only a transitory or local interest. The aim of the present editor has been to make, from the entire mass, a selection of those materials which seemed to be most likely to prove of service both to the general reader and to the special student of municipal affairs. For this reason the volume includes references of a widely differing character - some quite elementary and others semi-technical. It may appear incongruous to put such things side by side, but each has its own constituency. The field of municipal by side, but each has its own constituency. The field of municipal government has been approached from a broad viewpoint and regarded as including every important phase of local activity whether political, administrative, social or economic.
In determining what ought to be included and what left out, certain definite but not inflexible rules have been kept in mind. It may be well to indicate them here, for they embody principles upon which most men interested in bibliographical apparatus would probably agree; they also explain many things in this volume which might otherwise be taken as indications of editorial predilection or caprice, and may thus serve to forestall some fastidious criticism.
