During the early 1990s, a quiet controversy began in Australia about the nature of the ongoing global economic restructuring process, how it was initiated, and how it will affect the continent's economy and society. Global Restructuring: The Australian Experience offers a succinct, authoritative introduction to the various issues involved in this complex and important topic, one that has rekindled the debate about the future role of transnational corporations, foreign investment, the competitiveness of Australian production on world markets, and government's role in regulating global change and its impact on local economies. Bringing a geographical perspective to the debate, the authors of Global Restructuring define specific links between the processes of global change and transformations within Australia. They discuss the uneven impacts of change on major Australian economic and social sectors, and present insightful case studies of the food processing, iron and steel production, motor vehicle manufacturing, and banking industries. Provocative and fascinating, Global Restructuring adds an important voice to this emerging topic, and will be welcomed by students and researchers in social and economic geography, environmental studies, agricultural economics, and political economy.
