University College of Cape Breton Press, Inc., Sydney, 2003, ISBN:092033685x 
PATTERSON, Paul and Susan BIAGI. The Loom of Change : Weaving a New Economyon Cape Breton. Sydney, NS: University College of Cape Breton Press, Inc., (2003). Pp. (1),2-421,(3). Illustrated with numerous charts and diagrams. 8vo, ill. card covers, black titles to spine. A look at the expansive exploration of the nature of development in Cape Breton. "Rich in resources and rich in resourceful, creative people, Cape Breton Island was, for centuries, at the forefront of North American industrial expansion. Late in the 20thCentury, declining prices, rising costs and political deicision-making fav ouring industrial centres to the west caused the near catastrophic collapseof Cape Breton's mainstay economies: coal, steel and the fishery. Unpreced ented government intervention in development created an unhealthy economic dependency on Crown Corporations and a string of failed industrial-model enterprises. 'The Loom of Change' is an expansive exploration of the nature of development. Examining Cape Breton, Patterson and Biagi expose weaknessesin the mechanisms of centralized policy, then explain the complexities of development based on creativity and innovation and how economies may be woven by communities rather than accepted off-the-rack." - from the rear cover.
