Remaking the Global Economy offers a state -of-the-art survey of geographical perspectives on the restructuring and reorganization of the global economy. With contributions from leading figures in the globalization debate, the book explores the latest thinking and research, as well as the enduring controversies, across a range of interrelated issues, including:
- firm strategies and business knowledge
- interactions between firms and nation states
- production and innovation systems
- transnationalism and labour markets
- state restructuring.
Each of the specially commissioned chapters presents interdisciplinary insights into the complex processes of economic globalization and their impact on the organization of firms, markets, industries, regions, and institutions. An integrated and comprehensive account, this is a résumé of the latest work in the literature on globalization that will provide a detailed map of the geography of the global economy.
'A well-deserved celebration of economic geography's seminal contributions to globalization studies' - Michael Storper, University of California, Los Angeles
"As with many collections, this book is a mixed bag. At its best, it makes a vigorous case for a geographical understanding of globalization. It rests on the importance of place, making the book a particularly fitting testament."
