"In Knowledge Cities we taste both the pragmatic actions and theoretical underpinnings for a renaissance of community knowledge that offers the potential to accelerate humanity's quest toward wisdom. This collection of insights and understandings is cutting edge."
-- Alex Bennett, co-founder of Mountain Quest Institute, former Co-Chair of the Federal Knowledge Management Group and former CKO, Department of Navy
"Building and managing knowledge cities is a major issue for policy makers and citizens all over the World. Carrillo's book is welcome and timely to read."
-- Ahmed Bounfour, Associate Professor, University of Marne-La-Vallée
"This book provides a stimulating overview on the emerging and multidisciplinary field of Knowledge Cities. Theoretical and practical at the same time, Knowledge Cities sets the basis for cities value creation in the knowledge era. Highly recommended for those interested in a holistic approach of knowledge based development as well as those interested in the value dimensions of knowledge."
-- José M. Viedma Martí, Professor of Business Administration, Polytechnic University of Catalonia;
President of Intellectual Capital Management Systems; Independent Director of Interlace-ie
"The first comprehensive book to deal with the Knowledge City agenda in a comprehensive fashion. It outlines the shifts in thiking and strategy required if cities are to become competitive economically, socially and culturally."
-- Charles Landry, Author of 'The Creative City: A Toolkit for Urban Innovators' and 'The Art of City Making' (scheduled 2006)
"Carrillo's "Knowledge Cities" is a landmark book that successfully challenges the prevailing urban planning paradigm with a powerful vision of a future based on the critical resource of human capital. This book is arguably the most important new book in urban planning since the publication of Jay Forrester's "Urban Dynamics" in 1969. Carrillo and colleagues have managed to carefully craft a comprehensive book that persuasively explains why the knowledge-based perspective is critical to urban development around the globe. This exciting new book is likely to soon become a standard for the next generation of urban planners and public administrators."
-- Steven A. Cavaleri, Senior Executive Vice President, Knowledge Management Consortium International (KMCI) Professor, Central Connecticut State University
"Carrillo's book provides a rich mosaic representing the diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches from the collective wisdom of 27 distinguished scholars and practitioners. The convergence of global urbanization and the knowledge society into a knowledge city is a new complex phenomenon. This is the first book, to my knowledge, to offer a well-documented state of the art account of this phenomenon known as 'Knowledge Cities.'
- SLA Faultline
"This is the first book, to my knowledge, to offer a well-documented state of the art account of this phenomenon know as "Knowledge Cities." Divided into three parts (1) Approaches, (2) Experiences and (3) Perspectives, this volume explores the topic in a comprehensive manner. It outlines the shifts in thinking and strategies and the challenges to the prevailing urban thinking paradigm which requires cities to now become competitive not only economically, but socially and culturally as well." Karen Takle Quinn, FaultLine
