Description

First published in 1984, this book analyses contemporary changes in industry, employment, education, science and technology, social attitudes and values in the USA, leading to the emergence of a new geography of post-industrial America. David Clark emphasizes the distributional processes and trends that have occurred over the post-war period. Data are analysed by reference to the then most recent census, of 1980. Throughout, the book provides a valuable and very comprehensive text that will be welcomed by all those wishing to study the geography of the contemporary USA.
