    This title provides the most important essays and papers on urban and regional policy, making it a convenient summary of the key theories, approaches and research results. The study of sub-national politics is no longer mainly concerned with the urban political decision-making process and now focuses on the political, economic and social preconditions for urban policy. As the articles and papers reprinted in this volume demonstrate, local and regional politics are increasingly important features of most Western democracies. Economic and political life are more and more determined by changes occurring at the local, regional and global levels rather than at the national level. Learn More

  17. Urban and Regional Economics

    Urban and Regional Economics

    Edited by Paul C. Cheshire, Alan W. Evans
    Urban and regional economics – in contrast to the rest of economics – places great emphasis on distance and location and the importance of spatial relationships. Urban economics focuses on the city as a centre of economic activity where productivity is increased through many firms being located close to each other and to decision makers in the public sector. But because proximity is important, distance within the cities is also important and locations within the city will differ in their economic characteristics. Learn More
