With the economic crisis continuing into the 1980s, the necessity to adapt industrial structures to contemporary requirements became clear. This book, first published in 1982, is a volume unique in its coverage of the major countries, industries, and international relationships that together generate the dynamic of structural change. Case studies by industrial sector and country are provided, as well as thoughtful analysis of a broad range of issues, including protectionism, foreign investment, primary production vs processing and manufacture, energy requirements, market imperfections, employment, and the growth of interdependence.
