While reading Nagurney‘s “Comment on Catching the Network Science Bug“, I was fascinated that “Studies in the Economics of Transportation”, which was written in 1956 was mentioned. After all, Network Science is supposed to be “newer” than that.
I will not claim that I have given the book anything more than a brief look. However I read “A Retrospective on Beckmann, McGuire and Winsten’s Studies in the Economics of Transportation“.
This was not the first time that I saw this book being cited: It is also cited in Preface to “On a Paradox of Traffic Planning” (a preface to the English translation of Braess‘s “On a Paradox of Traffic Planning“ which introduces Braess’s Paradox).
Sometimes the titles stick to your head, I guess.
