About the Author

Mustafa Dinc, The World Bank, US


`This book by Dr. Mustafa Dinc of The World Bank is powerful, insightful and one of the most valuable presentations of practical steps in doing regional economic development. It links theory and practice in an operation step by step process that helps the practitioner do and not just think about regional development. He does not ignore theory or long-term strategies but focuses on the practical and functional steps which help a practitioner carry out the regional development process for his or her region. He also identifies steps for benchmarking regions and for monitoring progress. The practitioner and new professional will find it a key reference and standard for guiding the analytic process of regional development and the seasoned manager will also see the excellent value of this development tool. It is a great honor to have the opportunity to recommend such a penetrating, useful and outstanding contribution to the literature in this field.' -- Kingsley Haynes, George Mason University, US
`Introduction to Regional Economic Development is one of the first examinations of the field that not only introduces advanced undergraduate and masters students to the field but also serves as a useful guide to planners and practitioners responsible for building and implementing strategy in developing and emerging national and regional economies. The author's many years of experience in development planning and implementation in Central Asia, Middle East, South and East Asia provide a theoretical and methodologically-balanced treatment of the tools and concepts that dominate the field. Through the lens of globalization as a driver of change Dr. Dinc provides a new and fresh treatment of the material that defines regional economic development planning and practice.' -- Roger Stough, George Mason University, US
