"Particularly important at a time when cities and metros are compelled to innovate and problem-solve on their own, given the absence of federal and often state leadership."
--Bruce Katz, coauthor of The Metropolitan Revolution
"In this book, Michael A. Pagano brings together a stellar set of multidisciplinary and multigenerational scholars to reconsider the urban agenda in the post-Great Recession era. They offer a coherent focus on local capacities for adaptation and change in dealing with core issues such as infrastructure, pensions, economic vitality, social safety nets, and collaborative initiatives."
--Susan E. Clarke, coeditor of The Oxford Handbook on Urban Politics
"This book reveals the potential of metropolitan regions to cure, but also to transcend, endemic impasses beyond their respective borders. This well-written and insightful book is a must-read for scholars as well as policy makers."--Political Studies Review
