Author(s)Archila, Andres-Felipe; Sussman, Joseph M.
With HSR continuing to be the target of investments around the world, and with even the United States elevating the place of HSR on its public agenda, we have developed this annotated bibliography of references on HSR, regional economic development and related areas. We hope it will be of value to researchers, teachers, students and practitioners. We make no claim of completeness but we can attest that all the references contained herein have been useful to the Regional Transportation Planning and High-speed Rail Research Group. In Section A, we include references on transportation investment and economic development in general. Section B considers the case of HSR and economic development on the local and urban scale while Section C deals with the national, regional and international levels. Section D includes references on economic geography and disparities among regions. In Section E, we include references on HSR and aviation. Section F presents references on transportation project (including HSR projects) financing and value capture mechanisms. Section G deals with HSR organization and reform and Section H discusses HSR integration policy. Finally, Section I discusses international HSR experiences and Section J concludes with references on the Northeast Corridor of the U.S. Each section is subdivided in two categories: 1) papers and 2) books, reports, and theses.
