Alfred Weber's Theory of the Location of Industries by Alfred Weber

By Alfred Weber

In offering this ebook to the general public i'm spared a humiliation that many writers stumble upon; i don't have to supply an apology for the subject with which it offers. Alfred Weber streatise is a pioneering enterprise. He makes an attempt to grasp through theoretical research an entire desolate tract of proof which has grown up round us over the past centuries in regards to the position of our glossy production industries. to make sure, others have ventured upon the duty of describing and classifying the phenomena of geographical distribution; yet, as Weber issues out, prior writers didn't get past a trifling enumeration of assorted components which performed an element in opting for the site of industries. whereas i'm really inspired with the significance of Weber swork itself, if truly understood, it's accurately this job of creating it understood approximately which i think very apologetic. regardless of the assistance and recommendation which Professors Leon C. Marshall and Frank W. Taussig, in addition to Drs. E. H. Chamberlin, William Y. Elliot, Edward Mason, Talcott Parsons, and Andreas Pred hl have so generously afforded me, i don't believe convinced that i've got succeeded in conquering the problems which confront the translator of this kind of hugely summary treatise. Had now not Professor Marshall and Dr. Mason learn the total manuscript via and made a number of feedback for its development, I worry I would not have discovered the braveness to permit it see the sunshine of day. it will likely be conceded via those that have launched into the dangerous event of translating summary concept from one language into one other that not anything is extra perplexing.
