Bachtler, J.F. (1994) Regional Development in the 1990s - the British Isles in Transition - Townroe, P and Martin, P. [Review]Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
Paradoxically, in view of the low priority accorded to regional policy and regional planning in the UK over the past decade, regional development studies remain a popular field for enquiry judging by the number of new books and journals in this area. Regional Development in the 1990s, the fourth book in the 'Regional Policy and Development' series published by Jessica Kingsley and the Regional Studies Association, is one of the most ambitious of the recent offerings. The book, sponsored by the RSA, comprises an update and extension of the 'Inquiry' into regional problems and issues in the United Kingdom conducted by the Association in 1983. However, this publication has a much broader scope. In addition to regional profiles, the book contains a series of thematic contributions on specialist aspects of regional development, together producing a collection of 37 essays by 47 authors.
