Neal Peirce is a foremost writer, among American journalists, on metropolitan regions – their political and economic dynamics, their emerging national and global roles. Known widely as a lecturer on regional, urban, federal system and community development issues, Peirce has been a familiar figure before civic, business, academic, and professional groups nationally. He has appeared on Meet the Press, The Today Show, National Public Radio, and local media across the country.

In 1975, Peirce began – and continues today – the United States’ first national column focused on state and local government themes, syndicated by the Washington Post Writers Group. His 10-book series on America’s states and regions culminated in The Book of America: Inside 50 States Today (W.W. Norton, 1983). His more recent books were Citistates: How Urban America Can Prosper in a Competitive World and Breakthroughs: Recreating The American City.
