The Regions and Cities book series brings together perceptive and critically engaged international and interdisciplinary research on this resurgence of regions and cities. The series reaches across topics as broad as entrepreneurship and innovation, the role of universities and higher education, urban development and governance, growth of China, regional economic development in Latin America; and should be of interest to geographers, economists, sociologists, political scientists and cultural scholars, as well as to policy-makers involved in regional and urban development.

Why publish in the Regions and Cities book series?

Karen Chapple, Professor of City and Regional Planning and Carmel P. Friesen Chair, University of California, Berkeley, USA.”Regions and Cities has become the leading edge of regional innovation among scholars. We felt like we simply could not publish anywhere else.” Karen is co-author (with Sergio Montero) of Fragile Governance and Local Economic Development: Theory and Evidence from Peripheral Regions in Latin America (2018).

Philip McCann, Professor of Urban and Regional Economics at the University of Sheffield, UK and Honorary Professor of Economic Geography at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. “For me it was a no-brainer to publish with the Regions and Cities series. It is very close to the action in UK policy issues. I’ve been delighted with the great support on editing and marketing my book.” His most recent book in the series is The UK Regional-National Economic Problem: Geography, Globalisation and Governance (2016).

Jennifer Clark, Associate Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Center for Urban Innovation, Georgia Tech, USA. “The Regions and Cities series leverages two critical networks: Routledge’s disciplinary networks and the RSA’s professional networks, providing a far-reaching platform that is international and interdisciplinary in scope. The titles in the series cross national and disciplinary boundaries and provide an essential list of leading scholarship in the field.” Her most recent book in the series is Working Regions: Reconnecting Innovation and Production in the Knowledge Economy (2013).
