New from Stanford University Press

Invention and Reinvention
The Evolution of San Diego's Innovation Economy
Mary Walshok and Abraham Shragge

In Invention and Reinvention, authors Mary Walshok and Abraham Shragge
chronicle San Diego's transformation from a small West Coast
settlement to a booming military metropolis and then to a successful
innovation hub. This instructive story of a second-tier city that
transformed its core economic identity can serve as a rich case and a
model for similar regions. Chronicling over a century of adaptation,
this book offers a lively and penetrating tale of how one city
reinvented itself to meet the demands of today's economy, lighting the
way for others.

"A wonderfully engaging book for anyone interested in trying to
realize the social and economic benefits of basic research."
—Richard C. Atkinson, President Emeritus, University of California and
Director, National Science Foundation 1977–1980
