Controversies in Local Economic Development
Efforts to promote the economic development of individual localities engage the attention of academics, students and professionals. Many such analysts argue that competitive advantage can be fostered within local economies, complimenting the advent of a more globalised economy. Intensified efforts to build new economic foundations show no sign of abating despite the apparent increase in the international mobility of businesses and employment. Unpicking the arguments supporting different strategies for promoting local economic development, Controversies in Local Economic Development is an introductory guide to some of the major ideas and policy tools that have influenced academic debate and development practice. Taking the view that economic processes are mechanisms that promote desired outcomes only in particular contexts, the book asks questions of both academic debates and the prescriptions of policy experts.

No Enemies, No Hatred
When the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded on December 10, 2010, its recipient, Liu Xiaobo, was in Jinzhou Prison, serving an eleven-year sentence for what Beijing called “incitement to subvert state power.” In Oslo, actress Liv Ullmann read a long statement the activist had prepared for his 2009 trial. It read in part: “I stand by the convictions I expressed in my ‘June Second Hunger Strike Declaration’ twenty years ago—I have no enemies and no hatred. None of the police who monitored, arrested, and interrogated me, none of the prosecutors who indicted me, and none of the judges who judged me are my enemies.” That statement is one of the pieces in this book, which includes writings spanning two decades, providing insight into all aspects of Chinese life. Liu speaks pragmatically, yet with deep-seated passion, about peasant land disputes, Han Chinese in Tibet, child slavery, the Internet in China, the contemporary craze for Confucius, and the Tiananmen massacre. Also presented are poems written for his wife, Liu Xia, public documents, and a foreword by Václav Havel. These works not only chronicle a leading dissident’s struggle against tyranny but enrich the record of universal longing for freedom and dignity.

Go west, young man! The magic of the American West captured young Earl Norris during high school and held him hostage all his life. As pastor of a tiny church in the small town of Saline in eastern Montana, he found himself a world away–in more ways than one-- from his earlier life in Chicago. How would he deal with the perplexing differences? Having grown up in an urban environment with over four million people, he now lived in a town with a population of less than five hundred, and in a state with only about seven hundred thousand. Earl had gone west alone because his high school sweetheart, Lynn Ellerton, who could not accept the idea of becoming the wife of a pastor, had broken their engagement. Will he remain a bachelor? Could he ever re-connect with Lynn? Or will there be someone eligible in Saline, Montana? Will his detractors-- the morning coffee crowd at the local gas station-- force him out with their whispered suspicions? Might he find work further west? With declining population, what of the survival of the Saline church? Meanwhile what happened to Lynn? Did she settle for a job in her father’s company in Chicago? Her story is even more surprising than Earl’s. Westbound leads the reader through many a twist and turn in the lives of these two high school sweethearts, Earl and Lynn. Their stories will take the reader north to Alaska, west to California, and south to New Zealand as well as across the Atlantic to London in a tale of triumph and tragedy, tenderness and love.
