THis book, which is pretty much impossible to find outside of a library, was written in the early 1900s and is so far unmatched as a study of how transportation and information flow affects the behavior of culture. It talks about how the universities in Europe were set up because there were certain roads (Roman roads) that scholars could travel to get places. a great book and too bad it is so damned hard to find.
