Picking up where Washington Post writer Joel Garreau's book Edge City left off, co-authors analyze the growth and specialized functions (e.g. manufacturing, health services, retailing, business services, and information services) of seven types of edge cities in Ohio. Coverage includes a brief introduction to suburban development; a critique of Garreau's book; a discussion of edge-city look-alikes; and an investigation of the relationships between edge cities and the downtowns they surround.
