Summary Austria: Society and Regions is the first geographic work on Austria to appear since the 1920s. It presents the results of research in the fields of history, politics, regional planning, economics, sociology, and the earth sciences. It furnishes a representative introduction to the country and serves as an information base for the sophisticated general reader, with a wealth of maps and statistical data covering a variety of topics. In addition, it informs the international scientific community about Austrian problems of European relevance, for example the three-dimensional superimposition of the international leisure society upon the local society in high mountain environments, the impact of international migration on segregation in urban and rural areas, and the development of new regional disparities through the internationalization of the real estate market.
