Following publication of the government's White Paper on cities (2000), the question of what makes some cities more successful than others has become an increasingly important policy issue. This topical book tackles this question from differing perspectives. Although previous work has explored particular facets of competitiveness, this volume is the first to do so in a systematic way that combines theory, evidence and policy implications. Bringing together leading experts on urban economic performance, it provides a new look at the issue of urban competitiveness and offers new insights into the factors that shape competitiveness.

Review:

... a useful contribution to the literature on urban competitiveness in that it presents interesting and new empirical material that could spark similar research outside of the United Kingdom context ... read this book. Canadian Journal of Urban Research

... this volume will undoubtedly find its way into reading lists for specialist undergraduate and postgraduate courses and will be read with interest by academics and practitioners alike. Urban Studies

Acceptance that urban competitiveness is a key issue for national as well as local communities has run well ahead of understanding of what such competitiveness actually involves, both conceptually and empirically. This collection of papers represents a substantial step forward on both counts and deserves a wide readership among policy-makers as well as students. Ian Gordon, London School of Economics

About the Author:

Contributors to the volume include some of the leading UK-based specialists on urban economic performance and younger researchers, as well as North American experts. The editor, Iain Begg, is Professor of Economics at the South Bank University in London. He has recently completed a research project on the performance of British cities.
