This book presents an overview of the Israeli industrial spatial development from the Ottoman period up to the present day. Chapters are divided into five main themes: a background to Israeli industry and its role in the national economy; the evolution of industry from the Ottoman period up until the present day, including the genesis of spatial industrialisation policy from 1948-55, and industrialisation of development towns 1956-67; industrialisation in the period of recession during the 1970s and 1980s; rural industrialisation, including the role of the kibbutz; and industrial geography in the 1990s. The spatial development of Israeli industry is set within the broader context of the nation's political and economic development and of global economic change, as well as theories of industrial location and regional planning and development. -from Publisher
