(p.3) Chapter 1 Introduction

Nicholas A. Phelps

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that interplaces—the spaces and places in between cities and nations—are subjects worthy of study in economic geography. In asking why bother to study the economy between cities and between nations at all, the chapter alludes to the significance of interplaces in quantitative and qualitative terms. It notes aspects of both the inter-urban and international economies that represent interplaces. It outlines the conceptual basis of the book in discussion of the role of intermediaries and agglomerations, networks, enclaves, and arenas. The book is organized into five parts, with this brief introduction forming a first part. It closes by briefly describing the structure of the book and chapter contents.

Keywords:   intermediaries, agglomeration, enclave, network, arena, inter-urban, international
