Devolution, Regionalism and Regional Developmentprovides an overview and critical perspective on the impact of devolution on regionalism in the UK since 1999, taking a research-based look at issues central to the development of regionalism: politics, governance and planning.

This multidisciplinary book is written by academics from the fields of geography, economics, town planning, public policy, management, public administration, politics and sociology with a final chapter by Patrick Le Gales putting the research findings into a theoretical context. This will be an important book for those researching and studying economic and political geography and planning as well as those involved in regional development.

Jonathan Bradbury is Senior Lecturer in Politics at Swansea University. His research interests focus on devolution and regional governance. He is the founding joint convenor of the UK Political Studies Association specialist group on British and Comparative Territorial Politics.
