The industrial enterprise and its environment: Spatial Perspectives

£34.00

Product description

In a period when the economic and social sciences are being affected by the rise of new concepts and theoretical proposals, a work which gives a comparative critical examination of the problems they raise is still lacking. At the same time, the theme of the relationship between the global and local dimensions of development u which dominates contemporary social sciences u seems to have produced only occasional reflections so far in industrial geography. The volume has three main objectives: to illustrate the trends of theoretical analysis in contemporary industrial geography; to establish the strategic central role of company spatial behaviour through the understanding of new theories developed in the framework of managerial sciences and theoretically and conceptually advanced in industrial geography; to reconceptualize in terms of complex systems theory the dynamic of industrial enterprise, in a historical period when the local (territorial) dimension of development is structurally bound to the success of economic and social processes of a virtually global scale.
