Award Committee Assessment

Clarence Stone’s work is truly foundational. Virtually everyone in urban political science and in urban studies is at least acquainted with his writing on urban regimes.

With regard to teaching, Clarence Stone has been a much loved mentor to several generations of scholars in the field and has been the major professor for many students who entered the field of urban politics beginning in the 1970s, continuing to this day. Thus, the cumulative impact of Clarence Stone’s work will last well into the future for the development of the field of Urban Affairs, particularly in urban politics.
