Retail geography is in the process of positioning itself at the centre of a number of key debates on services, consumption and capital. Retailing can no longer be treated as being only indirectly associated with the 'real' world of production, but rather at the 'leading edge' of new developments within labour practices and the social relations of production. This text provides an innovative collection of chapters, giving an informed analysis of the transformation of the retail sector. It includes corporate restructuring and retailer-manufacturer-regulatory state relations, retail employment relations, consumption and capital, and retailer internationalization.
