A comparative analysis of frontier settlement in the Cape Province, South Africa, and Southern Ontario, Canada

Auteur :
NORTON, W.

Description :
Settlement location decisions in a frontier region reflect both the economic and cultural variables. Distance and environmental quality are two economic variables and both are also appropriate in analyses of migration and of economic change. Institutional considerations and issues of contact, cooperation and conflict incorporate a variety of cultural variables. Settlement chronology in a frontier region requires the initial location of an urban centre, distance biased rural expansion, frontier town creation and, finally rural population adjustment to newly perceived environmental variations.
