Urban Dominance and Labour Market Differentiation of a European Capital City: Lisbon 1890-1990by Pedro Telhado Pereira (Editor)
This book contributes to the study of Lisbon during the last one hundred years. It represents an attempt to analyse its role as a capital city within the Portuguese urban system and its regional trends, focusing mainly on economic history and particularly on the study of the Lisbon labour market and its changes in the context of economic development in the 19th and 20th centuries, during which it remained the principal job market in the country.
The book uses a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective and comprises six chapters, written by different authors, examining national, regional and sectoral trends. It is a contribution to the understanding of urban demographic, economic and social development in a less advantaged European country.
