Summary

After the general introductions, the first substantive part of this volume (Part II) provides concise research-based discussions of policies developed in recognition of the important role played by the pathways along which city-regions have travelled. Our research has shown that it is highly important to consider the wide variety of these pathways. Cities and their regions are likely to benefit from policies that build upon the knowledge and possible advantages of city-regions' historical pathways. Chapter 3 introduces Part II.
