Daniel Bliss, assistant professor of political science, has written a new book entitled, Economic Development and Governance in Small Town America: Paths to Growth.
Based on in-depth analyses of small town America, the book illustrates how small localities exercise choices. Taking careful account of comparative literature as well as variations in city governments, their planning agencies, and their relations with state authorities, this book explores the ways in which local politicians and public planning bodies can mobilize local constituencies to weather global challenges and common structural problems like unfavorable demographics, skill shortages, and out-migration.
Bliss’ new book is available for pre-order now and will be printed and published by Routledge in February 2018.
