This volume, first published in 1998, presents developments in urban geography, club theory and local public finance, and international trade which contribute to the explanation of the modern opposing trends of integration and segregation. Part I explores the role of transportation costs, crowding, and preferences for a large variety of goods in shaping the main features of urban geography. Part II contains four contributions on fundamental issues associated with the provision of collective goods (club goods and local public goods) using a game-theoretic approach. Part III investigates features of the production, pricing, and consumption of congested public goods. The articles discuss the financing of transportation infrastructure (a special case of a congested public facility) in an intertemporal framework, the efficiency of monopolistic provision of congested public goods, the 'musical-suburbs' problem, and the influence of cessation forces on federations. Part IV covers key tax issues arising in a world where economic borders are gradually being removed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'This fine collection of essays, most of them dealing with issues of local public goods and clubs, should be the main selection of the public-economics-Book of the Month Club.' Avinash K. Dixit, Princeton University
Review of the hardback: 'This book is a fitting tribute to the memory of Eitan Berglas ... a diverse and highly original set of papers spanning the many areas where issues of decentralization and integration must be appropriately balanced, a task that draws heavily on Berglas's legacy'. Robin Boadway, Queens University
