About the Book :

There have been limited studies dealing with the space relations of a city in terms of feedback to rural areas and flow of regional and local surplus to inter-regional and international centres. Similarly, there has been no systematic study that deals with the intra-regional as well as inter-regional human movements with reference to a nodal centre. Studies no rural-urban relationships have not adequately explained the integral functional link of surplus and deficit commodities. This book deals with almost all dimensions of transport geography and profile of development in an advanced region of India. It studies the role of Meerut city as a nodal centre in regional and in national perspectives by analysing the spatial and temporal trends of commodity flows and human movements. It further analyses the various correlates of interaction and determines the role of linkages, technology and institutions in the process of interaction to assess the problems and prospects of interaction. Since the volume makes use of spatial as well as temporal facets of growth , it is hoped that it would serve as a source for transport planning, regional development and, above all, to the cause of teaching and research in this vital field of geography.
