"Geographies of Commodity Chains" draws together contributions concerned with the production, circulation, and consumption of commodities. Not only do these case study examples seek to transcend older understandings of production and consumption, but they also explicitly tap into wider public debate about the meanings, origins, and biographies of commodities.
The book takes a geographical approach to the analysis of links between producers and consumers, focusing on the ways in which these ties increasingly are stretched across spaces and places. Critical engagements with the ways in which these spaces and places affect the economies, cultures, and politics of the connections between producers and consumers are threaded through each section.
