Thoroughly updated Fifth Edition explores the theories of local economic development while addressing the issues and opportunities faced by cities, towns, and local entities to craft their economic destinies within the global economy. Authors Nancey Green Leigh and Edward J. Blakely provide a thoroughly up-to-date exploration of planning processes, analytical techniques, and locality, business, and human resource development, as well as high technology and sustainable economic development strategies.
