Journal Urban Studies
A Special Issue of the Journal Urban Studies (Vol. 24, No. 3) appeared in March 2000. This is entitled "Location Theory: Analysis and Applications", and is edited by John Parr (University of Glasgow) and Aisling Reynolds-Feighan (University College Dublin). It is based on papers presented at the Twenty-Ninth Annual Conference of the British-Irish Section of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI) held at York (UK) in September 1998. The 12 papers (by authors from three continents) reflect the diversity of location theory, and the topics covered fall under the broad headings of spatial competition, urban economic growth, and the structure of urban systems. The various analyses involve different spatial scales, including the regional (unbounded), the interregional, the interurban, and the intraurban. Space is treated continuously (in one or two dimensions) as well as in terms of point locations, these being either undifferentiated or hierarchically ordered. The collection focuses primarily on the contribution of location theory to spatial economic analysis, with several of the papers having an explicit public-policy aspect. Copies of this Special Issue of Urban Studies are available from the publisher, Carfax Publishing (Taylor & Francis Ltd., P O Box 25, Abingdon OX14 3UE, United Kingdom).
