Book Description

Edited by two leading scholars who have been instrumental in the shaping of current thinking in the field of regional and industrial economics, this volume brings together a range of theoretical and empirical contributions that analyze and explain distinct patterns of regional development, and the successes and failures in this regard, across the world.

A mixture of theoretical insights and empirical and comparative evidence, it links these findings to on-going policy debates that attempt to understand the success and failure of distinct regions through particular models of institutions and patterns of governance.

International in appeal and scope, this book is an invaluable tool for students of all levels studying economics, economic geography, regional development, development studies, international business, international political economy, development sociology and public administration.
