Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Those tempted to venture onto this contested terrain would be well advised to choose their guidebook carefully and at present there are few which do the job better that Ash Amin's edited collection. The book's key virtue, it seems to me, is that it does not pursue a particular agenda in relation to the debate, but draws its contributions from across the spectrum of opinion." J. H. Love, Regional Studies

"If this particular Reader were a CD then it would no doubt be called 'Now That's What I Call Post-Fordism' or perhaps 'The Best Book on Post-Fordism... Ever!'." Andrew Leyshon, University of Bristol
