The anatomy of job loss : the how, why, and where of employment decline by Doreen B Massey( Book )
17 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the book, discussions about theory and methodology are complemented
