Editorial Reviews

In the context of regional science, transportation is taken to connote the generalized costs of travel encountered by individuals in carrying out their daily activities, or by firms in moving freight. The 38 papers collected here (from such sources as the "J. of Regional Science, Review of International Economics," and "J. of Political Economy") examine the fundamental forces that shape city size and type, the nature of the equilibrium relationships between land use and transportation, the dynamic properties of these interrelationships, and the effect of transportation congestion externality on urban form. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
