About the Book :

This is the third set of volumes in the well known series entitled concept international series in Geography. This multi-volume set has a wide coverage under the title Perspectives in Urban Geography. The earlier two sets in the series were : Perspectives in Agricultural Geography and Perspectives in Geomorphology. Traditional studies on aspects of Urban Geography had been concentrating on obser-vational records of developments of towns and cities till the subject came to acquire a behavioural approach recently. What resulted was a new matrix of philosophies, methodologies and their ingenious applications to what had been researched through the years. The present set of volumes ventures to make a rigorous survey of the literature on Urban Geography after its reorientation as it were. In this volume on Urban Research Methods those papers are included which postulate the principle of christaller and Lochs Models on the urban growth and their systematic arrangements. The volume provides a glimpse of rank, size rule and the hierarchical system of settlement in different cross cultural regions. A glance at the list of numerous papers in this volume on central place, rank-size relationship, effect of city size, hierarchical structures of central places would show both the current extreme concern with the system of cities and the empirical foundation of the models propounded. Renowned experts from various countries in the field of geography, economics and urban planning have contributed to the volume.
