I adopted this for last year's class. It is very good and just right for the audience. I can't use it this year, though. It is too out of date. I am trying to rush order the Blakely book!
The 13 chapters of the book cover essential critical themes around LED from various perspectives and well addressed to various target groups: students, academicians, researchers and practitioners. This book is well recommended for those who would like to explore LED from various lenses/ perspectives as applicable to multidisciplinary areas of development, governance and administration.
What I appreciated most about this book, was its accessibility for students with a weak economics background, yet who still have an interest in development planning and practice. The second edition offers a global perspective on local economic development and incorporates a more practical approach to LED which is especially beneficial to students preparing for the working world.
thank your for your great service!
Dense book; well researched and analysed but not apt for the 'principles of Sociology' course that I had hoped it would supplement.
Excellent for urban economic studies. Offers good academic content. Texts rich in theory and praxis. Readable for students.
Easily understood by students, concise yet thorough
This book is helpful for the course and its been used in my class at another university. Lazarski University warsaw.
very useful for development studies. Thank you.
Concepts, theories and tools of Local Economic Development are discussed in this text book without neglecting the respective local institutional and cultural influences
