Becattini (emeritus, political economy, U. of Florence, Italy), Bellandi (applied economics, U. of Florence, Italy), and De Propris (industrial economics, U. of Birmingham, UK) bring together 53 articles that provide an overview of the main lines of historical and contemporary debates in economics concerning industrial districts. They begin with setting the historical context, both in terms of the conceptualization of industrial districts in different disciplinary perspectives and in terms of industrial districts as an empirical phenomenon. They then address the nature of industrial districts through discussion of socio-cultural and institutional aspects and in terms of dynamics of knowledge, learning, and creativity. Empirical chapters are then presented examining the evidence concerning industrial districts in Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, France, Japan, Latin America, China, and India. Finally, they turn to contemporary challenges concerning industrial districts, including globalization, technology, adaptability, and institutional responsiveness as the key "global challenges" facing industrial districts, as well as the public policies and industrial development strategies needed to sustain industrial districts and related forms of development.
