'This is a good book. It is well conceived, well organized, and well written, and it makes a substantial contribution to the public policy literature, not only with regard to the challenge of integrating environmental concerns and economic development, but also with regard to the capacity and role of local and regional governments in a multilevel hierarchy.' - Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy
