Glen's newest book, Universities and Regional Development: A Critical Analysis of Tensions and Contradictions, co-edited with Romulo Pinheiro and Paul Benneworth, was published by Routledge (June, 2012). While universities are under increasing pressure to help promote socio-economic growth in local communities, this book discusses the tremendous complexities associated with the relationship between universities and regions that makes regional development extremely challenging. Romulo, who was the lead editor on the project, discussed the book in a blog on the HEDDA site.
