particularly interesting publication. Published by the Bureau of Busi-

to a study of "Sunbelt Cities." Each of the eleven essays are written by
different scholars, and each essay treats a different subject. The topics
vary from "The Fiscal Health of Large Sunbelt and Frostbelt Cities"
to "Urban Service Quality and Residential Relocation in Dallas." This
issue is one that Association members will find particularly informative.
