This review essay explores economic development initiatives and practices from the regional, city, and neighborhood level. Taken together, the three books discussed here provide a holistic account of urban realities and, in particular, of urban economic development. These books deepen our understanding of how structural, political, organizational, and individual factors and decisions interact to shape economic development initiatives and outcomes. In so doing, these hooks provide a refreshing antidote to the more typical scenario of urban dualities for example, agency versus structure, global versus local, public versus private that constrains much of the literature on urban economic development.
