Développement Économique Et Mobilité Des Travailleurs: L'individu, La Profession, La Région
By Alain Girard with the Collaboration of Pierre Meutey
Institut National d'Études Démographiques, 1956, 158 pp.

The bulk of this book comprises case studies of successful and unsuccessful efforts to move French workers when factories, mines and railroad operations decline in an area, or move to a new location, or recruit for new installations and operations. The data vary from case to case in quality and quantity so the generalizations that can be drawn from them are limited, but the major examples are of considerable value in themselves.
