A festschrift to honour Mel Greenhut, who has long toiled on spatial economics, this book focuses on a single question - if and how economic space matters, discussing theoretical, as well as historical issues of contemporary relevance. Subjects covered include historical accounts of spatial economics; land use and public goods; and location theory and spatial competition. Hiroshi Ohta is the author of "Theory of Spatial Pricing and Market Areas" (with M.L. Greenhut), "Spatial Price Theory of Imperfect Competition" and "New Frontiers in Regional Science". Jacques-Francois Thisse is the co-author of "Discrete Choice Theory of Product Differentiation". The contributors include Simon P. Anderson, William J. Baumol, Bruce L. Benson, Andre de Palma, B.
