Economic Development Finance is a comprehensive and in-depth presentation of private, public, and community financial institutions, policies and methods for financing local and regional economic development projects.

"'Incredible. What a major contribution, just to pull together the diverse array of information out there about development finance into one volume. I consider this book an "education" for the lay reader, and a fabulous resource for the practitioner of development finance' - Dr Rhonda Phillips, University of Florida; 'This is the most comprehensive and best-written economic development text in the market. This would be a good text for a graduate level course and would work well with a one-semester teaching plan... The main strength of the book is the author's ability to summarize concepts, programs, and institutions and then draw from them issues, lessons, and challenges' - John S Strong, School of Business, College of William and Mary"
