In this revised second edition the basic structure remains unchanged but the discussion of location factors and location decisions has been expanded and greater emphasis has been placed upon the small firm sector. The dynamics of industrial location is also an important theme. The interrelationships between trends in industrial location and public policy are a major concern of the authors in this revised edition: separate chapters deal with the role of industry in the economic development process at international, regional and metropolitan level, and also with the place of manufacturing in environmental and other welfare issues. General principles of industrial location are illustrated by empirical material drawn from all over the world. The format of the new edition has been improved to incorporate a substantial increase in the number of maps and diagrams. Industrial Location, 2nd edition provides a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of a central issue in geographical studies and business studies.
