"This is the first full length study of space relations of multinational corporations operating on Indian soil.
"Based on an analysis of 435 multinational corporations operating in India during late eighties, the author analyses the systematic relationship between the spatial organisation of MNCs and India's uneven development. She examines the questions of regional disparity, metropolitan hegemony and shrinking base of organised labour to formulate a spatial approach on MNC operation in this country. The book develops an integrative perspective on the spatial dimension of international capital with reference to India." (jacket)
