Industry on the move: Causes and consequences of international relocation in the manufacturing industry, edited by Gijsbert van Liemt
Internationally, the scope for locational change is widening rapidly as more mobile capital and technology and improved global communications have called for increased flexibility. This book concentrates on two aspects of this: how and why the international distribution of manufacturing output and employment is changing in the aircraft, automobile, clothing and steel industries; and the adjustment process at the national level that causes, and is the consequence of, these changes at the global level, through case studies on the American steel, Italian clothing and Mexican automobile industries and the aircraft industries of Singapore and Indonesia. A separate chapter assesses the impact of structural change on trade unions.

Introduction to work study. Fourth (revised) edition, edited by George Kanawaty
Widely recognised as the best available introduction to the subject, this highly successful book describes the basic techniques of work study as practised in many parts of the world, updated for this edition to take account of developments such as the profound changes in methods of operation in factories and offices as a result of new technology, innovations in production management, the growth of the services sector and new arrangements of working time introduced in many enterprises. While the fundamental aims of this book - to provide training in method study and work measurement - remain the same, the present edition covers not only "machine shops" but also process industries, the services sector and office work. Reference is made throughout to the use of information systems and computerisation to solve work study problems. There are six new chapters dealing with production management approaches and their relation to work study, and the part on work measurement now encompasses a whole spectrum of new techniques. The chapters on working conditions and new forms of work organisation have been revised in line with current thinking.

Defence expenditure, industrial conversion and local employment
This informative and thought-provoking book examines recent experience of industrial conversion of defence-related production in several industrialised countries. Can workers find alternative employment, can defence industry employers develop new products to maintain their workforce, or will these workers become unemployed? This book provides some answers for planners who must find ways to minimise the socio-economic costs of diverting defence-related employment to civilian production.
