Equity, Growth and Community -- book cover

UCSC Professor publishes groundbreaking Open Access book through Luminos, the UC Press Open Access Scholarly book publishing platform.  


Chris Benner, Professor of Sociology and Environmental Studies, along with Manuel Pastor of University of Southern California published their book Equity, growth, and community : what the nation can learn from America's metro areas through Luminos, the University of California Press Open Access Publishing Platform. [The] central messages of our book – that equity and opportunity are key for sustainable growth, that cross-sector conversations can bring new common ground, and that data deliberations in knowledge communities can forge productive solutions – are all really reflected in the open-access model Luminos is helping to pioneer. It’s a perfect fit for us and we’re proud to be part of this effort."
