This book focuses on the role of tangible and intangible networks that affect spatial interdependencies in economic and social life. Interaction across geographical networks, in urban regions and between regions. Some of these new networks embed new technologies for communication, economic decisions and governance in such a way that the role of distance may be reduced. For certain types of interaction these changes seem to bring about a globalization of markets as well as social life in general. Hence the question, is distance disappearing? Moreover can we observe new forms of the distance phenomenon? Is distance becoming more important in the exchange of knowledge and ideas?
