Summary Read First Chapter image missing

A comprehensive look at the economic relations among states, and how they might be better optimized.

In this groundbreaking volume, Joseph F. Zimmerman examines interstate economic relations. He explores the history of congressional and judicial ground rules governing such relations, direct and indirect interstate trade barriers and means of their removal, and interstate competition for tax revenues, business firms, sports franchises, tourists, and gamblers. He also covers the significant roles played by interstate compacts, federal-interstate compacts, and interstate administrative agreements. Recognizing the importance of harmonious interstate economic relations in promoting economic development, Zimmerman offers specific recommendations to Congress, the president, and state governments for strengthening the economic union.

“…[a] remarkable contribution … to our understanding of interstate relations in the federal system.” — Perspectives on Politics

"In this useful book, political scientist Zimmerman outlines the political, historical, and judicial scope of interstate economic relations in the U.S. Its greatest strengths lie in providing the legal and historical framework for analyzing the issues, and even seasoned scholars will find much for thought and reflection here." — CHOICE

"Replete with relevant United States Supreme Court decisions and a host of interesting case studies, this book provides the first comprehensive treatment of interstate economic relations. The scholarship and research are simply excellent. It will be widely read and discussed, and will prove to be an outstanding and lasting contribution to the study of intergovernmental relations." — Nelson Wikstrom, coauthor of Metropolitan Government and Governance: Theoretical Perspectives, Empirical Analysis, and the Future

"This book is likely to become the authoritative source on interstate relations." — Ann O’M. Bowman, coauthor of State and Local Government, Fifth Edition

Joseph F. Zimmerman is Professor of Political Science at the University at Albany, State University of New York, and the author of many books, including Interstate Cooperation: Compacts and Administrative Agreements.
