“Two main approaches to town development have been adopted in the literature. … In conclusion, van Leeuwen’s work achieves this goal: her methodologies identify a set of elements crucial for highlighting the multifaceted relationship between town-hinterland and the regional economy at different spatial levels and for different actors (households, farms and firms). The set of methodologies used could combine fully with the rural development approach as a standard for future analyses of local economics in rural areas.” (Vincenzo Fucilli and Ruggiero Sardaro, Italian Journal of Regional Science, Vol. 9 (2), 2010)
