    Transport and Land Use

    Edited by Joseph Berechman, Hirotada Kohno, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp
    This collection includes both classical and recent papers that explore the complex interrelationships between transport, land use and the spatial organization of metropolitan areas. Since land use planning and transportation planning play a major role in shaping these relationships, special attention is given to studies on planning issues and policies. Whilst one section of the collection features papers written in the tradition of urban economics, the main emphasis is on studies which examine the impact of various changes in transportation systems on land use.

    Regional Policy and Regional Integration

    Edited by Niles Hansen, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp
    Regional Policy and Regional Integration reprints the most important papers on those government policies that have an intentional and formal geographic focus.

  7. Location Theory

    Location Theory

    Edited by Jacques-François Thisse, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp
    In recent years a growing number of social scientists have become increasingly interested in the study of location problems. This interest has been fostered by the integration of national economies within broader spaces such as the EU or NAFTA as well as by their impact on the development of regions and cities. Another important reason for this attention is the growing awareness among economists that a comprehensive economic theory can no longer put space aside. Most economic activities are distributed over space, and for such activities space moulds the very nature of competition between firms. Learn More

    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

  9. 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
