Economic geographers have long been doing studies of the tertiary occupations or industries such as transportation, international trade, health services, public safety, and wholesale and retail trade. There have been some recent attempts to consider the growing significance of these services in ``the post-industrial society'' but Daniels's book is the first comprehensive synthesis of service industry studies and includes considerable original analysis. There are three useful appendixes, a good bibliography, two indexes, and ample, well-done illustrations. Although designed as a text, this book might be even more valuable to the educated general reader and the maker of corporate or public policy in the Western World. Upper-division undergraduates and above.-M.I. Glassner, Southern Connecticut State University
