From the Foreword: ̀The chief aim of this book is to present the reader with an integrated system of methods dealing with geographical statistics (̀geostatistics') and their applications. It sums up developments based on the vast experience accumulated by Professor Bachi over several decades of research. Interest in the quantitative locational aspects of geography and in the common ground of geography and statistics has grown rapidly, involving an ever-increasing spectrum of scientific disciplines ... the present volume will fill a genuine need - as a textbook, as a reference work, and as a practical aid for geographers, applied statisticians, demographers, ecologists, regional planners, economists, professional staff of official statistical agencies, and others.' - E. Peritz, G. Nathan, N. Kadmon
