The Southwest under Stress: National Resource Development Issues in a Regional Setting


"This thought-provoking book is purported to be a capstone on the Southwest Region Under Stress Project, which extended from 1973 through 1978. The intended outgrowth of this extensive research endeavor was the anticipated inducement of viable public-sector state and local government policy alternatives... Even though this provocative volume is one of many scholarly publications which radiate from the aforementioned Southwest Under Stress Project, and would generally provide a worthy selection to the regional scholar's professional library, the variation in the topical content range implies a reader's choice classification. Several selections should prove to be beneficial to both undergraduate and graduate reading lists in courses related to economic geography, demographic economics, natural resources, and regional economics." -- Journal of Regional Science
