Rethinking the Region argues that regions are not simply bounded spaces on a map. This book uses unique research of England during the 1980s to show how regions are made and unmade by social processes. The book examines how new lines of division both social and geographical were laid down as free-market growth and reconstructed this are as a `neo-liberal' region.
The authors argue that a more balanced form of growth is possible - within and between regions as well as between social groups. This book shows that to grasp the complexities of growth we must rethink `the region' in time as well as in space.

"Doing Your Business is a comprehensive guide that provides step-by-step directions for owning a business. It uses the personal approach to solving the many problems that can confront owners as they travel along the road of satisfying market demands and operational efficiency. It emphasizes that all business owners are not experienced in the techniques of supervision or the skills of management. As such, this nature is shared by many small "Mom and Pop" stores, Dot.coms, light industries, or service entities.
Through its pages, readers will find guidance about when consultants should be hired and when the owner may do his or her own consulting to save the costs of outsourcing. Griffith cuts
through the maze of getting equipment for a business and reveals how shortcuts may be made to encourage employee participation in finding better ways of doing business. Also discussed are
procedures, and many of the prime policies are listed for their inclusion within a company policy manual. Lastly, an outline is given on how an owner may personally rate the business and how
he or she may get feedback from the customers.
Richly layered and informative, Doing Your Business talks about how to organize any business and how to measure progress while looking at employee needs and training."
