This Handbook deepens and extends the engagement between research concerned with work and employment and labour geography. It links fundamental concepts concerning the politics of place that human geographers have developed in recent years with the world of work.
Internationally recognised scholars from around the world have been brought together to debate the questions that arise at the intersection of the worlds of production, reproduction and consumption. They consider developments in the geographical and work and employment literature, as well as theorising and understanding how social actors’ lives are deeply geographically structured. They explore what space and geography mean for work and employment, examine workers as objects in socio-spatial relations and concentrate on workers’ accommodation of, and resistance to, the new geographies of capitalism in the global economy.
Advanced students, postgraduates and scholars in sociology, geography, business studies, industrial/labour relations and employment studies will find this Handbook of immense value.
