  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of industrial hubs and economic development
  • Uses historical as well as firm-, industry-, and country-level evidence and experiences to identify the sources and drivers of success and failure
  • Looks at the longer-term prospects for industrial hubs in the twenty-first century
  • Reviews emerging issues and possible responses including gender, climate change, environmental sustainability, emerging shifts in the global economy, and technological advancement

Industrialization supported by industrial hubs has been widely associated with structural transformation and catch-up. But while the direct economic benefits of industrial hubs are significant, their value lies first and foremost in their contribution as incubators of industrialization, production and technological capability, and innovation. The Oxford Handbook of Industrial Hubs and Economic Development adopts an interdisciplinary approach to examine the conceptual underpinnings, review empirical evidence of regions and economies, and extract pertinent lessons for policy reasearchers and practitioners on the key drivers of success and failure for industrial hubs.
This Handbook illustrates the diverse and complex nature of industrial hubs and shows how they promote industrialization, economic structural transformation, and technological catch-up. It explores the implications of emerging issues and trends such as environmental protection and sustainability, technological advancement, shifts in the global economy, and urbanization.
