In Zoes Leben gibt es eine Menge Dinge, die sie nicht gerade glücklich machen: - ihre Stiefmutter Sheila, die sogar zu faul ist, um sich selbst in der Nase zu bohren – und es stattdessen von Zoe verlangt, - ihre grässliche Klassenkameradin Tina, die ihr das Leben schwermacht – am liebsten, indem sie Zoe auf den Kopf spuckt, - und als wäre das alles nicht schon genug, hat der fürchterliche Bert von Berts Burgerbude etwas richtig Schlimmes mit Zoes kleiner Ratte vor. Ich kann dir nicht verraten, was genau er mit ihr vorhat – aber ein kleiner Hinweis verbirgt sich im Titel dieses Buches.

The Changing Economic Geography of Globalization

Author: Giovanna Vertova

Publisher: Routledge

The process of globalization has had profound, often destabilizing, effects on space, at all levels (i.e. local, regional, national, international). This revealing book analyzes, both theoretically and empirically, the effects of globalization over space. It considers, through a dialogue among different paradigms, the ways in which space has become more important in the global economy. Globalization has been advocated as a way of shrinking time and space which will lead to a homogenized global market; a suggestion challenged in differing ways and with a variety of approaches by all the contributors to this volume. Leading authorities from a range of disciplines are represented amongst this impressive list of contributors, including Eric Sheppard, Bjørn Asheim, Richard Walker and Peter Swann. The chapters demonstrate persuasively the continuing, and even increasing, role of space in the global economy, and throughout, the book covers viewpoints from the fields of: international political economy economic geography regional and local economics. This impressive volume, which contains a selection of the best in contemporary scholarship, will be of interest to the international arena of academicians, policy makers and professionals in these or related fields.

Organised in sections with multiple chapters, The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography is a complete overview of the discipline that critically assesses: Location, the quantitative revolution and the 'new economic geography' Geographies of globalization and capitalism Geographies of scale/place and the local/global Geographies of nature, agriculture, sustainable development and the political ecology Geographies of uneven development, economic decline, and money and finance Geographies of consumption and services Geographies of regulation and governance, neo-liberalism and welfare.

Ein Glossar zu Räumen der Gegenwart

Spätestens seit dem »Spatial Turn« hat die Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften ein neues Interesse an der Räumlichkeit gesellschaftlicher Verhältnisse und kultureller Konstellationen erfasst. Raum als eine Nahtstelle gesellschaftlicher Beziehungen in den Blick zu nehmen, ist auch die Absicht dieses »Ortsregisters«, das 46 Essays zu Raum- und Ortsbegriffen der Gegenwart versammelt. Jenseits großer Erzählungen über den Zusammenhang von Gesellschaft, Kultur und Raum und auch jenseits rein metaphorischer Bezugnahmen auf Raumbegriffe richtet das Glossar den Blick auf eine Vielzahl alltäglicher und unscheinbarer, umstrittener und umkämpfter, verheißungsvoller und exklusiver Räume und Orte, die für die kulturellen Konflikte und gesellschaftlichen Paradoxien unserer Zeit stehen.
