"Miller and Cox's Governing the Metropolitan Region clearly delineates the critical issues surrounding both governance and regionalism. The book will be a hit, that's for sure—the structure is accessible and understandable, and the authors' presentation is clear. An outstanding text for students, citizens, and leaders." --Michael A. Pagano, University of Illinois at Chicago
"Governing the Metropolitan Region is the only text available that succeeds in capturing the changed landscape of collaborative governance that has emerged over the last decade in metropolitan areas. Miller and Cox highlight both the horizontal and vertical dimensions of intergovernmental relationships in metro areas that can involve both competition and cooperation. The result is an unusually thoughtful look at the most significant but least understood level of government in the United States. This book could have a profound impact on how we both study and teach regional and metropolitan government." --Richard C. Feiock, Florida State University
"Miller and Cox blend far-ranging statistical analyses with always insightful case studies in this masterful review of the current state and future challenges of regional governance in metropolitan America. Their new book is a must-read for all scholars, professionals, public officials, and citizens concerned with the social, economic, and fiscal challenges faced within our metropolitan areas." --David Rusk, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
