About this Book

At a time when references to things 'global' have gained more currency than ever, this book explores the nexus of power and space behind the politics of geographical scale.


  • Explores the nexus of power and space behind the rescaling of contemporary social, economic and political life.

  • Organized into three sections on theorizing scale, the discourses and rhetorics of scale, and scales of activism.
  • Will stimulate discussion about how conceptions and visions of scale inform all aspects of social life.
