This innovative book focuses current concerns about the transformed geographical structure of industry and human resource development. It provides the essential link between these two research areas and develops a new theoretical dimension to the debate. There is no other book which covers similar ground from such a wide range of cases within a consistent framework. The objectives are three-fold: firstly, to provide a theoretical perspective about the emerging connections between global and local forms of industrial organization and human resource development; secondly, to explore systematically, through selected case studies, some of the key transformations which are shaping the form and nature of industrial spaces and human resources; and finally, to review policy and planning processes which are appropriate to the matching of globally integrated industrial spaces with locally planned human resource development. This is an essential up-to-date book for students and researchers in geography, economics, regional planning and political science, as well as consultants and practitioners in industrial policy and human resources.
