Editorial Reviews

"The authors' careful scholarship, intellectual rigour and clear analysis of mainstream theory means that this new edition of Regional Economics and Policy will continue as a standard work for students. The book provides an excellent synthesis of theoretical and empirical work on regional economic concepts and theories, leading to clear and important lessons for policy. It successfully brings updated literature and new material to bear on the key issues in the field." Ronald McQuaid, Napier University "This is an excellent textbook on regional economic theory and policy. This edition has been comprehensively revised to take account of the recent revival of interest in regional issues and the consequent burgeoning literature in the field. The book presents recent developments in the context of earlier work and both are discussed in a succinct and masterly fashion. This book will continue to remain the definitive overview of the subject and will be widely consulted by all those interested in the regional aspects of economic activity." John McCombie, University of Cambridge
