The Geography of Multinationals : Studies in the Spatial Development and Economic Consequences of Multinational Corporations. Hardback
Edited by Michael Taylor, Nigel Thrift
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: International Business series
Through a series of international case studies, the nature and the geographical implications of the development of multinational corporations is examined.
The volume concentrates on the latter Post-War period of corporate restructuring and readjustment in response to world-wide recession in the mid-1980s.
The volume is divided into two parts. In the first each of the chapters considers a particular aspect of the problem of how multinational corporations have developed.
In the second part the chapters consider different aspects of the economic and social impacts of these corporations.
The common theme that links all the papers is their emphasis on careful historical analysis of different forms of spatial organisation and their transformation into other, different forms.
