Breaking new ground in its innovative blend of quantitative and qualitative methods, the book essentially argues that another sort of growth is indeed possible. While offering specific insights for regional leaders and analysts of metropolitan areas, the authors also draw a broader ' and quite timely ' set of conclusions about how to scale up these efforts to address a U.S. economy still seeking to recover from economic crisis and ameliorate distributional divisions.

Editorial Reviews

'Among the major findings were that regional government has value, economic diversity was a benefit, educational institutions can be an anchor, and a strong black middle class is beneficial. Economic development, not workforce development, is a key factor. In conclusion, regional equity needs ties to bind people together; sustained growth requires a diverse employment base; and growth and equity require inclusive leadership. This ambitious work covers new ground. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate level and up. ' - E. C. Erickson, California State University, Stanislaus
