GOVERNING URBAN REGIONS THROUGH COLLABORATION: A VIEW FROM NORTH AMERICA. Joel Thibert. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2015. Global Urban Studies. 280 pp. with 18 ills. ISBN 9781472435590 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: With the demise of the Old Regionalist project of achieving good regional governance through amalgamation, voluntary collaboration has become the modus operandi of a large number of North American metropolitan regions. Although many researchers have become interested in regional collaboration and its determinants, few have specifically studied its outcomes. This book contributes to filling this gap by critically re-evaluating the fundamental premise of the New Regionalism, which is that regional problems can be solved without regional/higher government. In particular, this research asks: to what extent does regional collaboration have a significant independent influence on the determinants of regional resilience? Using a comparative (Canada-U.S.) mixed-method approach, with detailed case studies of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Greater Montreal and trans-national Niagara-Buffalo regions, the book examines the direct and indirect impacts of inter-local collaboration on policy and policy outcomes at the regional and State/Provincial levels.
