Description

This book ties the settlement geography and history of specific city-systems together in a unified framework. The process of population concentration and dispersion within each city-system is explained using a general model that allows particular interconnections of geography and history to be explored. Preface; Acknowledgements; We would like to dedicate this work to the late Carville Earle whose teaching and writings on geographical history are the inspiration for this work. We would also like to acknowledge our families, our friends, and this beautiful nation, whose geography fascinates us, and whose history enlivens us.
