1. Modern Classics in Regional Science series

    Series editors: Kenneth Button, George Mason University, US and Peter Nijkamp, VU University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Modern Classics in Regional Science series brings together, previously published contributions to the field of regional science spanning a period of forty years. The series is intended to look at more recent literature in the field rather than to embrace all the classics which form the foundation of the subject. Much of the important literature is still spread across a range of sources and is often difficult to access. This series brings together under six major titles outstanding selections of the most important articles which can be considered as modern classics in regional science, making them more accessible to a larger audience. Each collection of papers has been gathered together by the editor with the help of a large international panel.

    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.

  4. 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
