MARKEY, Sean, Greg HALSETH, and Don MANSON. Investing in Place : Economic Renewal in Northern British Columbia. Vancouver : UBC Press,  Pp. (7),viii-xii, -338, (2). 8vo, illustrated pale blue card covers. "The futur e of northern British Columbia, a vast resource-rich region of vibrant cultures and diverse communities, could be either driven by a narrow economic agenda or guided by innovative place-based solutions that seek to build viable communities and resilient local and regional economies. Investing in Place is about creating the foundations for renewing northern British Columbia's rural and small-town economies. The authors argue that renewal is not about nostalgic reliance on the policies and economic strategies of the past but 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 liesin the place-based development, in people working together at all levels o f the community and region to take advantage of local opportunities in a sustainable, responsible way." -- from rear cover.
