9780043381274: Production, Work, Territory: The Geographical Anatomy of Industrial Capitalism

An understanding of the mechanisms of production and work is critical to any effective analysis of the origins, historical trajectory and internal structure of capitalist societies and the world system. One of the central moments of any such analysis is the question of geographical anatomy. In what amounts, in essence, to a reformulation of human geography, this book brings together work by some of the foremost researchers on problems of industrial development and geographic change. The book breaks new ground in building up a problematic of productive activity, labor markets and territorial organization in modern capitalism. The authors then explore in great detail the different theoretical, analytical and empirical struct within this problematic. Several new approaches are developed to location theory, local labor markets in cities and regions, and to regional analysis generally.
This important book will interest geographers, regional scientists, planners and all social scientists concerned with how cities and regions are fundamentally structured by processes of economic production and human labor.
Allen J. Scott was Professor of Geography and Michael Storper is Assistant Professor of Urban Planning, both at the University of California, Los Angeles.
