Abstract

Ulsan, South Korea is home to the world’s largest auto production complex and shipyard, and its second biggest petrochemicals combine. Drawing upon Jacobs’ Contextualized Model of Urban-Regional Development, this article shows how Ulsan’s growth path towards becoming one of the world’s Great Industrial Cities was decisively shaped by both global and nested factors. While the weights of the various tiers from the global to local have fluctuated over time, no one level has had primacy. (The rest omitted)
