Link, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, US ‘The overcrowding of national parks around the world is not a new phenomenon. This book offers a classic economic rationing technique – differential prices – as a policy remedy to the overcrowding of U.S. national parks. The implementation of this seasonal pricing scheme is illustrated across several examples of national parks. Professor Link offers here a straightforward solution to an old problem. This is a very valuable book to all of us grappling with the overuse of public assets.’ – Nicholas Vonortas, The George Washington University, US 2022 144 pp Hardback 978 1 80392 068 9 £65.00 / $99.00 Political Change through Social Innovation A Debate Frank Moulaert, KU Leuven, Belgium, Bob Jessop, Lancaster University, Erik Swyngedouw, University of Manchester, UK, Liana Simmons, Political Scientist, Food Activist, Italy and Pieter Van den Broeck, KU Leuven, Belgium ‘This thought-provoking volume sits at the nexus of social innovation and democratic political theory and practice. Leading international scholars compare and confront different approaches to nurturing emancipatory social change in a world increasingly encountering populist politics and ruptures to “democratic” systems. It provides a valuable landmark for anyone interested in solidarity-based social relations and the potential for social political change.’ – Jean Hillier, RMIT University, Australia 2022 176 pp Hardback 978 1 80392 513 4 £75.00 / $110.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Dialogues series OPEN ACCESS The Role of Cities in International Relations TheThird-generation of Multi-level Governance? Agnieszka Szpak, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Robert Gawłowski, WSB University in Bydgoszcz, Joanna Modrzyńska, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Paweł Modrzyński, UTP University of Sciences and Technology in Bydgoszcz and Michał Dahl, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland ‘Cities have increasingly captured the imagination of international scholars and practitioners. This “rise” to fame is much talked about, but the international legal practicalities often remain overlooked and in need of tangible insights. Taking us on a much welcome empirical tour between security, climate, innovation and migration, The Role of Cities in International Relations does just that for European cities, with a timely intervention rooted in clear research material – a useful read for lawyers and legal, as much as IR, scholars alike!’ – Michele Acuto, University of Melbourne, Australia September 2022 c 264 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 442 7 £90.00 / $130.00 eBook • Elgaronline Cities series Property Rights and Urban Transformation in China Zhu Qian, University of Waterloo, Canada ‘Zhu Qian provides an incredibly thorough treatment of property rights in China. Most importantly, this remarkable book investigates China’s urban transformation corresponding to changing property regimes. His explanations of the pivotal role of state-controlled property rights in China’s phenomenal urbanisation, resettlement and urban-rural integration, informality and property speculation are highly original and insightful. The book is an essential reading for those who are interested in urban development in China and the grounded implication of property rights.’ – Fulong Wu, University College London, UK August 2022 240 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 660 9 £85.00 / $125.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Studies in Planning Theory, Policy and Practice 6 Save up to 20% at e-elgar.com I For our electronic content, visit: elgaronline.com GOGRAPHY, URBAN & REGIONAL NEW TITLES, JULY – SEPT 2022
