Modern Urban and Regional Economics explains the spatial economic underpinnings of the behaviour of urban and regional economies in order to highlight the differences between the two types of economy. The explicitly spatial approach enables the author to present both urban economics andregional economics within a single integrated framework, using clear model-based explanations from first principles and extensive graphic illustration of the theories discussed.Online Resource CentreFor Lecturers:* PowerPoints* Figures from the bookFor Students:* Questions and cases
