Reviews

'The exploration of the connections between globalization and local government is timely given the importance of international influences on the economic, social, and environmental challenges facing governments... The discussion of various theories surrounding governance and reform trends in the two countries offers useful insights on specific country experiences, as well as broader trends and developments in the sector. The editors provide valuable perspective for those seeking more effective ways to enhance the contribution of local governments to the sustainable development of communities.' -- Claudia Scott: Commonwealth Journal of Local Governance, Issue 7: November 2010 'Local Government in a Global World is very accessible to practitioners and academic audiences... The editors and authors provide valuable perspectives for those seeking more effective ways to enhance the contribution of local governments to the sustainable development of communities.' -- Claudia Scott; Commonwealth Journal of Local Governance: Issue 07: November 2010
