Ann Markusen, one of the foremost theoreticians of regional development, has produced a book destined to become a classic in its field. Regions is a penetrating and innovative study of the political and economic aspects of American regionalism. Using historical materialism as a methodological foundation, the author analyzes the historical developments and contemporary issues of American regionalism. She contends that territorial differentiation and conflicts have emerged as major determinants in the spatial transformation of American regions. The book is rich in historical facts and case studies that are used to illuminate the theoretical dimensions of the contemporary public policy debates on regionalism.
