Spatial analysis assists theoretical understanding and empirical testing in the social sciences, and rapidly expanding applications of geographic information technologies have advanced the spatial data-gathering needed for spatial analysis and model making. This much-needed volume coversoutstanding examples of spatial thinking in the social sciences, with each chapter showing some aspect of how certain social processes can be understood by analyzing their spatial context. The audience for this work is as trans-disciplinary as its authorship because it contains approaches andmethodologies useful to geography, anthropology, history, political science, economics, criminology, sociology, and statistics.
Michael F. Goodchild and Donald G. Janelle are both at University of California, Santa Barbara.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good resource bringing good current perspectives The content of this book is worth of mention. It presents in volume an excellent collection of spatial analysis methods used in social science. Too often is the non-physical use of spatial analysis confined to the hack-application of marketing efforts. What about real world social concerns? Crime? Poverty? Ethnicity?
