Editorial Reviews


"As a thorough and systematic exposition of how urban economies function, it is to be warmly welcomed."--Urban Studies

"A book of major importance that should become a key building block for urban theorists and a reference point for policy analysis in the coming decade....Establishes the benchmark against which further neoclassical models, nonneoclassical models, and critiques of economic spatial theory will be evaluated--and developed."--Journal of Regional Science

"[An] impressive collection."--Journal of Developing Areas

"A most interesting and useful book, weaving several of J.V. Henderson's most important essays into a coherent whole and adding significant new research. It is theoretically rigorous, yet accessible to nonspecialists because of concise chapter summaries and policy-oriented chapters. All things considered, Henderson has produced a book that will be the standard reference in urban economic development for some years."--Andrew R. Morrison, Tulane University (in Journal of Economic Literature)

"It's about time someone wrote this book, and nobody is better qualified than J. Vernon Henderson"--Scott McKinney, Hobart and William Smith College

"An impressive presentation."--Roger Riefler, University of Nebraska

""A definitive work in the genre."--Choice
