Originally published in 1987 and taking a review of the theories and processes of industrial relocation as its starting point, this book examines the nature of organisational and technologcal changes in detail and concludes with a series of industry case studies drawn from areas throughout the world. The book examines the salient features and implications of the reorganisation of industries and industrial enterprises, reflecting their development or harnessing of technological changes - not least ot increase their bargaining power with, control over, or use of labour. Various chapters discuss policy-making and the role of the State posed by the speed, scale and character of the changes.
