Most widely held works by Gunnar Törnqvist
Organizing European space by Christer Jönsson( )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Organizing European Space looks at the phenomenon of the sovereign state and the question of alternative ways of organizing Europe politically and economically. Combining perspectives from the different disciplines of the authors - political science, history and geography - it provides a comprehensive introduction to 'Europe' or European space as we understand it today." "The book explores four different ways of organizing space in Europe: state, union, region and network. It reviews the origins, resilience and adaptability of the sovereign state historically, before looking at the implications of the contradictory processes of integration and fragmentation, or globalization and regionalization, present today. A key concept developed throughout the book is that of networks, especially with respect to the European Union, and the relationship between regions, networks and cities, a relationship long traditional to Europe's political organization." "Organizing European Space will be essential reading for all students of contemporary Europe seeking a deeper understanding of the modern state and the complexity of changing notions of identity, organization and territoriality inherent in Europe in the past or in the future."--Jacket

The geography of creativity by Gunnar Törnqvist( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is creativity and who exactly is creative? In this insightful and highly readable book, the author attempts to answer these questions by arguing that geographical millieux are hotbeds for creativity and renewal - places where pioneers in art, technology and science have gathered and developed their special abilities. In light of ongoing social and economic transformations, special attention is paid to the institutional settings in firms and universities. The goal is to identify those features which facilitate and those which impede the creative process. Individual lives are illustrated through the autobiographies of hundreds of Nobel Laureates. Their life paths reveal the importance of geographic mobility and contact patterns for the development of creativity and international prestige. From these biographies we can also see how local millieux and schools have influenced many scientists"--Back cover

"The learning region has become an important concept among scholars, managers and policymakers. Companies are more and more stimulated by and dependent on the unevenly distributed localized capabilities that enhance learning and innovation.

"The aim of this book is to investigate the regional linkages between learning and competitiveness using the North European Oresund Region as an illustrative case."--BOOK JACKET
