About this Book

Transnational spatial relations offer a key point from which to study the geographies of contemporary globalization. This book assesses the possible cross-fertilization between two of the most notable analytical frameworks - the world city network framework and the global commodity chain framework.

  • Transnational spatial relations have become a key analytical lens through which to study the geographies of contemporary globalization
  • Brings together contributions of key researchers from different backgrounds and different parts of the world
  • Offers a set of original approaches to the study of the networked geography of globalization
