Abstract

The regional economy, spatial structure and regional urban systems, Regional Studies. In approaching the concept of the regional urban system, attention is initially drawn to the better-known types of economic region. The distinctive nature of the regional economy is next examined, and it is argued that its spatial structure represents an important dimension. Spatial structure can be characterized in a variety of ways, the most comprehensive of which employs the perspective of an urban system. This is examined firstly in terms of particular models from location theory, which provide important points of reference, and then within the setting of the present-day city-region.
