The author examines some fundamental questions about the role of Montreal, its economic impact on Quebec and about linkages between it and other major urban centres. He provides an important critique of some prominent theories of regional development, notably the growth center theory. Skillfully weaving different theories and approaches, he presents a new strategy for urban, regional and national planning.
