This textbook on the geography of the service sector, a rapidly-growing area of the economy in Western societies, stresses how emerging economist trends have progressed due to technological change, social and political responses, and unprecedented economic transformations to produce a "post-industrial world". An introduction is given to how the various elements of the service industries have produced a new economic geography of location, production and exchange. Case illustrations on a variety of scales from local to regional and national are used. The importance of technological change, the location and impact of offices, the growth of multi-national operations, finance and property development, and accessibility are among the themes tackled within the geographical perspectives of location and structure. This text is intended for use in business studies, management, demography, economics, geography, planning and public administration.
