From the back cover blurb
SPATIAL INTERACTION documents the conclusions of a thesis Mr. Ikpo wrote in partial fulfilment of requirements for the award of an M.Sc. degree of the University of Ife, Ile-Ife in 1986. The dissertation assessed economic and social interaction in a typical less-developed-country urban-rural setting with tests and other applications of the conventional gravity model. The primary finding was that key economic (and often population) centres beyond study focus settings – intervening influences – mostly affected interaction between interacting unit pairs and triads of settlements rather than the units on their own and by themselves. Consequently, fresh versions of the gravity model are presented for assessment and application. Other hypotheses that attempt to explain select natural phenomena are also presented and tied-in with views of The Creator and His creation.
Eugene Ikpo is Nigerian and was formally educated at Federal Government College, Warri and at the Ife University, both in Nigeria. He is an investment banker and is married to Oye Ikpo and they are blessed with a daughter, Lote.
