Authors who have collaborated for some 20 years provide a total resources approach to financing local economic development, "the act of combining values and perceptions," now that government's role in meeting community needs has been downsized. They cover the elements of strategic planning, organizing for the venture, finding the market, accessing the money, and putting the plan together. Includes checklists, a sample business plan, glossary of terms, and additional resources. Giles heads her own business consulting firm. Blakely is dean of the graduate school of management and urban policy at New York U. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
