Reissuing works originally published between 1952 and 1991, this collection presents a wide-ranging set of excellent texts across economics, geography, urban studies, planning, politics and industrial studies. Addressing problems and policy, development and demographics, these books together form a wealth of research and debate. Some volumes address specific areas such as industrialization, housing, property, city-systems, de-centralization, employment or rural resources. Other volumes present case studies in Australia, Britain, underdeveloped countries, South Africa and the USA while some are fully international in representation. Given the recent economic shifts around the world, this timely collection is an incredibly useful resource.
