The handbook of evolutionary economic geography by Ron A Boschma( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wide-ranging Handbook is the first major compilation of the theoretical and empirical research that is forging the new and exciting paradigm of evolutionary economic geography. The book's distinguished contributors set out the theoretical, methodological and empirical foundations of an evolutionary perspective on the economic landscape. In so doing, they explore the interplay between organizational dynamics, industrial dynamics and space; analyse the nature and spatial evolution of networks; address the evolution of institutions in territorial contexts; and explore the evolution of agglomerations and clusters. This original reference work will undoubtedly play an important and formative role in influencing the future research agenda of evolutionary economic geography. It will strongly appeal to scholars, researchers and students in economic geography, regional economics, evolutionary economics, industrial economics, management and organizational studies, and related fields."--Publisher's information

Putting workfare in place : local labour markets and the new deal by Peter Sunley( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Putting Workfare in Place' is a diligently researched and empirically rich account of the significant changes to Britain's work-welfare regime. Policymakers need to be aware of how institutional spaces and labour market conditions interact to produce local knowledges and Sunley, Martin and Nativel provide us with compelling evidence to question national assumptions of socio-economic development. This book lays out a thoughful assessment of the UK's New Deal programme and the extent to which its underlying theory and ideology adequately reflect the geographies of unemployment. The authors do a masterful job, and policymakers, academics, policy advisers and politicians will find this book both compelling and considered. The book argues that profound differences in local labour market conditions have exerted a telling influence on the New Deal's achievements. It proposes not only that contemporary labour market policy should be based on theories and models of the national economy and of individual behaviour, but also that policy design needs to recognise the importance of the local and regional labour market contexts which shape its viability and outcomes. By situating policy in this way, the book not only examines how workfare has been put in place in the UK, but also puts place into workfare

Union retreat and the regions : the shrinking landscape of organized labour by Ron Martin( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the beginning of the 1980s, British trade unions have experienced a dramatic retreat, marked by rapidly falling memberships and declining industrial power. The authors examine the regional dimensions of this retreat of organized labour, paying particular attention to the resilience of the unions' historical heartland areas, the impact of economic restructuring on local union traditions, the shrinking landscape of industrial militancy, the geographical decentralization of the new industrial relations, and the link between these factors and the more general debate on regional development and regional labour markets. An important synthesis of economic geography and industrial relations work, this book marks a major contribution towards the newly emerging field of labour geography
Unemployment and social exclusion : landscapes of labour inequality by England) Regional Studies Association (Seaford( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Persistent high unemployment and growing labour market inequality have become entrenched features of many European countries. This edited collection of papers focuses on the regional and local dimensions of these problems across the European union as a whole and, more particularly, in the UK. In addressing the contemporary landscape of unemployment, social exclusion and public policy the contributors highlight several key themes, including how the processes of unemployment and social exclusion have an important local level of operation; the increasing gender dimension to changes in employment and to labour market inequalities; the failure of official definitions and counts of unemployment to provide effective guides to the true scale of joblessness; and the need for more local-focused policy interventions to help reduce the problems of unemployment, employment insecurity and low incomes that now characterise many of the advanced countries
