Editorial Reviews

Economists, statisticians, geographers, town and regional planners, public policy specialists, and others offer 15 contributions discussing network developments in a variety of different fields and disciplines. New developments discussed include the relationship of future European transport systems to sustainable spatial development and self-organizing urban economies. Some of the theoretical analyses discussed focus on proximity and circulation in production networks and offer hypotheses about a general networks morphogenesis process. Empirical analyses address the measurement of inequality in hospital network access and telecommunication usage. Case studies address a railway container terminal in Norway, the Dutch Railway System, and telecommunications in Tuscany, Italy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
