Originally published in 1986. This book is concerned with how regional economies adapt and respond to changing circumstances, and especially with the spatial system and processes of restructuring. Throughout the book there is a methodological commitment to adjustment theory - a unique analytical framework for the study of the dynamics of advanced capitalist economies. Instead of homogenising space in the manner of neoclassical economic theory, the authors focus on adjustment processes that produce and reproduce spatial differentiation.
The most important facets of regional economic structure are covered - employment, wages, prices, migration, and capital investment - in terms of their own dimensions and their connections with the larger theoretical framework. Each part of the book develops one particular dimension of regional adjustment, and each has an overview and summary. Within each part, there is a sequence of related studies focussing on the empirical aspects, theoretical logic, and distributive consequences of regional adjustment.
