"Fitzgerald and Leigh have done a commendable job of providing not only the theoretical and historical dimensions of these issues, but also support them with examples and case studies that easily convince the reader that social equity and sustainability need not be sacrificed altogether in order to promote local economic development, even though small trade-offs may be necessary."
"This is an important and comprehensive book on local economic development planning. . .Over the next decade, this book is certain to have a major impact on students, scholars, and practitioners seeking a broader understanding of economic development planning."
