Handbook on the Geographies of Globalization

Edited by Robert C. Kloosterman, Virginie Mamadouh and Pieter Terhorst

Processes of globalization have changed the world in many, often fundamental, ways. Increasingly these processes are being debated and contested. This Handbook offers a timely, rich as well as critical panorama of these multifaceted processes with up-to-date chapters by renowned specialists from many countries. It comprises chapters on the historical background of globalization, different geographical perspectives (including world systems analysis and geopolitics), the geographies of flows (of people, goods and services, and capital), and the geographies of places (including global cities, clusters, port cities and the impact of climate change).

Chapter 3: Globalization and the question of scale

Kevin R. Cox

Abstract

The most recent round of globalization generated an enhanced interest in geographic scale. The contributions of the scalar restructuring school have been particularly prominent. While some of the empirical tendencies identified there can be disputed, the major concern in this chapter is its under-specification of the capitalist nature of processes of scale formation and the associated role of geographically uneven development and both between and within countries.
