Clusters in Urban and Regional Development by ANDREW CUMBERS

Going beyond the celebrated 'hot-spots' of economic development, this book draws upon evidence from a broader range of cities and regions to help fill some important gaps in our knowledge of how clusters operate within the contemporary global economy.

This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal Urban Studies.
