Über den Autor (2000)

As part of the group of geographers trained at Northwestern University in the 1960s, Allen J. Scott helped lead the quantitative movement. His use of mathematical models in spatial allocation analysis was well received. Now as professor of geography at the University of California in Los Angeles, Scott has, over the past two decades, helped define a new geography that combines rigorous statistical methods with efforts to develop broader social theory. His work on modern industrial location has been highly influential to a new generation of urban, economic, and political geographers.
