"Regionalism enjoys strong support across political and ideological boundaries. This text offers one of the most compelling and insightful perspectives into what regionalism looks like in practice, the strengths and weaknesses of regionalism, and the conditions under which regionalism succeeds." -Mark K. Cassell, Kent State University "David Hamilton has produced a highly engaging text on metropolitan governance. Its strengths include a clear, single-authored focus, accessible reflections for senior undergraduates, graduates, and practitioners on contemporary governability challenges in our larger city-regions, and sufficient comparative reflections to challenge any false clarities in how we might govern ourselves in an increasing urban-metropolitan world." -Patrick Smith, Simon Fraser University "This is a competent and relevant update of the book and deserves continued use.--W. C. Johnson, independent scholar." Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduate, graduate, and professional collections. CHOICE
