About this title


`The region-specific nature of economic success matters in urban and rural regions alike, as this volume illustrates with a wide-ranging set of theoretical perspectives and empirical studies. The authors in this collection provide fresh ideas and new insights into a concept "endogenous development" that remains central to understading regional development.'---Ed Malecki, The Ohio State University, USA

Increasingly, endogenous factors and processes are being emphasized as drivers in regional economic development and growth. This 15 chapter book is unique in that it commences by presenting five disciplinary takes on endogenous development from the perspectives of economics, geography, sociology, planning and organizational management.

Several chapters demonstrate how researchers have developed operational models to investigate the roles played by endogenous factors in regional ecocnomic development, including the role of entrepreneurial rents. Further chapters provide empirical investigations of endogenous factors in regional development at various levesl of spatial scale - from the supra-region to the nation, city and small town - and in a variety of situational settings, including the European Union, Asia and Australia.

The book is an invaluable up-to-date resources for researchers and students in regional science, and regional economic development and planning.
