Investing in Place is about creating the foundations for renewing northern British Columbia's rural and small-town economies. Markey, Halseth, and Manson argue that renewal is not about nostalgic reliance on the policies and economic strategies of the past - rather, it is about building a pragmatic and innovative vision for development, one that acknowledges both the opportunities and the challenges posed by resource development and global and technological change. The path to renewal lies in place-based development, in people working together at all levels of the community and region to take advantage of local opportunities in a sustainable, responsible way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Investing in Place" is a first-class piece of work that should become one of the 'must' books on the subject. "W"ell situated in the broader literature, illustrated with different case studies, and written in a clear and accessible style, it is based on penetrating research that is easily accessible to professionals in the regional development field as well as local and regional players and interested citizens."
- Christopher R. Bryant, Departement de geographie, Universite de Montreal
