The arrangement of the book is as follows: chapter 1 - introduction. Part I trend and composition of the spatial distribution of manufacturing employment in four metropolitan areas. Chapter 2 - Cleveland. Chapter 3 - Minneapolis St Paul. Chapter 4 - Boston. Chapter 5 - Phoenix. Chapter 6 - summary of findings of part I. Part II - behavioral regularities and hypotheses. Chapter 7 - changes in the location of industry in centralized locations. Chapter 8 - the incubator hypothesis: a test. Chapter 9 - manufacturing activity in poverty areas. Chapter 10 - industrial concentrations and changes in the location of industrial employment. The references at the end of the book are presented as notes, and arranged under individual chapters. /TRRL/
