This major new reference work includes a selection of the most important articles and papers on urban economic theory published during the last twenty years.
Analytical Urban Economics focuses on a branch of urban economic theory that attempts to analyze economic behaviour in cities by referring to geographical space rather than dealing with a spaceless world. The contributing authors to this volume are drawn from some of the most prominent urban economists in the world and from leading economic journals, especially those focusing on urban economics.
This volume, with a new introduction written by the editors, is divided into ten sections including `The Distribution of Income and Utility over Space', `Dynamics' and `Alternatives to Monocentric Models'.
This book will be an essential reference text for urban economists and will be important background reading for graduate courses on urban economics.
