"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."
