"In their introduction to Beyond the City Limits, Logan and Swanstrom directly challenge the notion of economic restructuring processes as single, uniform, monolithic global processes. They stress not only the variability of these global processes and the consequent potential for political discretion and choice but the need to link more systematically the changes in production processes with changes in 'broader social and political processes.'" - Urban Affairs Quarterly "This book [makes] a positive contribution to the growing literature on the urban role in economic growth and regeneration." - Choice
