Editorial Reviews

`This book represents a major contribution to the literature. It very nicely brings together and expands upon the now large volume of writing dealing with rescaling processes and state theory, and in doing so it both provides new forms of theoretical knowledge and adds to the current debateon urban governance.'Annals of the Association of American Geographers, 2006
