In this brief introduction, Hollie Russon Gilman provides readers with everything they need to understand this new form of inclusive governance. She articulates a broad framework for understanding participatory budgeting in the context of civic innovation in the United States and surveys participatory budgeting efforts to date with a particular focus on New York City.
