Book Description

One popular view of the Netherlands is that of a society oriented towards agriculture and associated processing industries. The primary aim of the first half of this book is to chart this evolutionary process and its formative influences, thereby providing a background to the contemporary industrial scene. The early chapters offer initial insights into inter-regional industrial contrasts and into the problems that beset regional manufacturing economies.
