The concluding article in the volume is by Michael Goodchild and Robert Raining. Its focus is on the convergence of Geographic Information Systems and spatial data analysis - a trend that should increasingly broaden the interest of applied regional scientists in Geographic Information Science.

In order to provide one version of a historical assessment, the book review editor of Papers in Regional Science, Brigitte Waldorf, carried out an e-mail poll of a large number of internationally active regional scientists. Each scholar was asked to select a small set of "path-breaking" books: those that rank as the most important and influential both in the development of the field and in the respondent's own scholarly development.
