‘In the era of globalization, governance has become multi-level, from supra-national bodies down to local organizations. This important book suggests that to promote cluster development effectively, multi-level governance often requires an interaction between top-down and bottom-up policies. Or at least, more adaptable coordination between levels facilitates the fruitful co-evolution of policy at different governance levels, with firm learning in clusters. It warrants attention from those interested in global governance structures, as well as the dynamics of clusters.’
– John Cantwell, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Newark, US and University of Reading, UK
