Abstract:

Why do people migrate to and settle in the places they do? Determining factors have included areas that offered defensive advantages, resources such as metals, salt, and fossil fuels, and locations on trading routes. In modern times proximity to commercial centers and transportation links, such as railways, canals, and airports, have become more important. The concepts of urbanization-the settlement and growth of cities-and suburbanization, the return to the countryside and the growth of commuter towns, are both examined.
