Summary Economic regions competing in a global marketplace may well describe the emerging organizing principle of metropolitan areas. Even though the concept of a metropolitan region is relatively new, the road to the metropolitan region travels through an area of well-established institutions and cultural values--the land of local government. This book is about the development of new ways of governing metropolitan regions in the United States within the context of the globalizing of the economy and the historical role and function of local government
