First published in 1985 and strongly quantitative in flavour, Analytical Studies in Transport Economics presents work that was at the frontier of research in the field of transport economics. Written by some of the leading scholars in this field, it covers intercity freight and air passenger transport. The eight papers included cover a range of modelling approaches and address a variety of transport issues. They are all, however, concerned with the analysis of current issues - questions of industry productivity, optimal pricing and regulation, prediction of equilibrium, and the problems of competition. The collection is preceded by an invaluable 'Introduction and overview' by the editor. Provided to place the volume in context, this overview gives a brief review of the relevant literature and then endeavours to present the common results and findings which cut across the individual papers or approaches.
