Summary/Abstract: The first goal of the study is to outline the current state of knowledge of functional-spatial and socio-cultural transformations of complex settlement systems, especially the ones in traditional socio-economic regions. The second one is to propose several complementary model approaches (circular models of economic transformations and urbanization). The author's starting point is an attempt to model the origin and evolution of the economic base as a crucial element of the remaining changes in the socio-economic space. A model of economic change, like urbanization, is complementary to one another, reflecting both the centripetal and centrifugal forces conditioning transformation of the entire settlement system.
