MEDIA REVIEWS

At a time when empirical work is increasingly done as fast research or sidelined altogether, it is a pleasure to see what good monographs are capable of achieving Werner brilliantly demonstrates how the global factory works as a set of discourses and spatial imaginaries in addition to the mechanisms of capitalist accumulation Global Displacements offers provocative insights enabling the reader to look behind the veils of all-too-simplistic representations that promise economic development with the help of global factory and global value chain. - Christian Berndt, Economic Geography, Vol. 93 No. 2.
