This study covers some of the major adjustments in the external relations of cities during periods of industrial revolution, particularly as these alterations relate to the changing role of the city as a focal point in the regional and interregional space-economy. Four groups of hypotheses are presented and developed. The first is concerned with those external relations extending from technical innovations and the industrial scale-shifts associated with such innovations. The second group proceeds from the effects of reduced transportation costs, and the alterations in the relative accessibility of places within the regional and interregional space-economy. The third set is built upon transformations necessitated by the increased demand for food products. The fourth group comprises changes in the pattern of internal migration from rural areas to urban centers. Author
