  1. Migration and Culture

    Migration and Culture

    Edited by Robin Cohen, Gunvor Jónsson
    Migration and Culture marks a first in providing a comprehensive collection of published articles linking migration and culture. Prior approaches to migration have often stressed statistical and economic factors. The theoretically challenging and comparative accounts represented here are part of a new wave of thinking which illustrates the meaning of migration and its profound cultural implications. With an original introductory essay by the editors, this volume will be of great interest and value to sociologists, anthropologists, and those interested in cultural studies, diaspora, transnationalism and post-colonialism and the cultural aspects of globalisation.

  2. Choice Modelling: Foundational Contributions

    Choice Modelling: Foundational Contributions

    Edited by David A. Hensher, John M. Rose
    Choice modelling is an area of growing popularity as many researchers and consultants seek to find better ways to explain the choices made by individuals, households and firms in many application contexts such as transportation, health services, environmental science, marketing, finance, economics, tourism, vacationing, education and employment. Choice modelling as a field began as long ago as 1927 but it was the research in the 1960s and 1970s that cemented the field as a dominant one for studying choice. This authoritative volume, along with an original introduction by the editors, brings together seminal papers that laid out the main features of the booming literature on discrete choice modelling. This timely collection will be of immense value to anyone with an interest in this evolving field of study. Learn More

  4. Entrepreneurship and Regional Development

    Entrepreneurship and Regional Development

    Edited by Zoltán J. Ács
    Entrepreneurship and regional development can be addressed from many different angles: clusters, creativity and human capital. Professor Acs, a distinguished researcher in this field, approaches this debate through technology. Technological change can be regarded as the most important factor in long-run macroeconomic growth. It has been argued in new growth theory that the technological element of the growth process results from the profit-motivated choices of economic agents. This important volume makes an essential contribution to this debate by presenting an authoritative selection of the most significant published work on entrepreneurship and regional economic growth.

  5. Economic Integration and Spatial Location of Firms and Industries

    Economic Integration and Spatial Location of Firms and Industries

    Edited by Miroslav N. Jovanović
    Progress in technology and moves towards a liberal economic policy have caused a number of economic activities to become highly mobile. This raises important questions regarding the future location of economic activity: where will firms locate or relocate and how will firms and industries fit into space that is influenced by economic integration? Through his selection of key previously published articles, Professor Jovanović aims to provide a survey of the theoretical foundations of spatial location of firms and industries, and to explore the impact of economic integration on this process.

  8. Planning History and Methodology

    Planning History and Methodology

    Edited by Michael Wegener, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp
    Planning as deliberate preparation for future action is as old as human history. Agricultural land allocation and cities were always planned, as were military warfare and defence. With the growing complexity of society in the 19th century, however, planning became a discipline and profession. Since then, not only has the perception of planning and its role in society undergone significant change, but its instruments and methods have also evolved. This collection of classic papers by leading individuals of their day reflects how thinking about planning has changed over time. It also includes seminal papers on the methodology of planning to show how sophisticated techniques have been developed to meet the diverse demands of planning in a rapidly changing world. Learn More

  9. The Growth of Cities

    The Growth of Cities

    Edited by Zoltán J. Ács
    To understand why some regions grow and others stagnate, we need to understand the interactions between economic growth, economic geography and the economics of innovation. Each of these individual approaches has strengths and weaknesses, but when integrated it is possible, as evidenced by this volume, to develop an appropriate model of technology-led regional economic development.

  12. Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Edited by Michael Keating
    The last half century has seen the rise across Europe of a new intermediate level of government and politics, usually referred to as a region. However the term ‘region’ means many different things and can be approached from many different angles – geographical, historical, cultural, social, economic and political. Although it is in Europe that regionalism as a multiform phenomenon has developed furthest, the European experience resonates in other parts of the world, where some of these elements also exist. In this volume, Michael Keating has selected some of the most significant previously published articles which provide a comprehensive overview of past and current thinking on this subject. Learn More

  13. Globalization and the Location of Firms

    Globalization and the Location of Firms

    Edited by John Cantwell
    This authoritative collection reprints the key articles in the field of locational clustering, and the relationship between local clusters and the activities of multinational firms. It covers both the principal theoretical and statistical explanations of the clustering of firms in common locations, and includes a selection of important empirical studies of this phenomenon. Special attention is given to the role played by knowledge spillovers, and notably the geographical dimension of the relationship between firms and universities. Further articles demonstrate how, contrary to some popular beliefs, globalisation is not only consistent with the emergence of a new emphasis upon locational clustering, but in many ways it has helped to promote the differentiation of the productive capabilities of different locations, and so has reinforced clustering and reflected it.

  14. Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Edited by Kenneth Button
    The past decade has seen both some new trends in the economics of transportation and the reinforcement of work from previous periods. Econometrics and innovative programming techniques have developed the work on production efficiency and interest in demand analysis has continued. Of increasing importance in recent years are the environmental implications of transportation as well as safety and security concerns. Economists are also addressing the problems of congestion with particular regard to new policy initiatives which tie transportation more closely to land-use patterns and telecommunications. In this volume Kenneth Button brings together some of the most significant previously published articles by leading academics in all these crucial areas. Learn More

    Transport and Information Systems

    Edited by Roger R. Stough, Yoshiro Higano, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp

This important new collection examines the substitution and complementarity hypotheses as well as the impact of new information technology on transport and the increasing adoption of information technology in transportation systems.
