MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Global Commodity Chain framework looks at the interconnected functions, operations, and transactions through which specific commodities are produced, distributed, and consumed. The purpose here is to assess the possible cross-fertilization of the two in order to strengthen the critique of conventional state-centric social science that both engage in separately. Contributors whose disciplines are not revealed - presumably economists and geographers like the editors - consider such topics as exploring the role of Mexico City in the geography of global economic governance, urban places in the system of chains, and intra-firm and extra-firm linkages in the knowledge economy as exemplified by the emerging mega-city where Munich once stood." ( Reference and Research Book News, February 2011)
