Now thoroughly updated for the challenges of the 21st century with deeper coverage of sustainability and resiliency, the Fifth Edition explores the theories of local economic development while addressing the issues and opportunities faced by cities, towns, and local entities in crafting their economic destinies within the global economy. Authors Nancey Green Leigh and Edward J.
