Abstract At a time when references to things 'global' have gained more currency than ever, this book explores the nexus of power and space behind the politics of geographical scale. Explores the nexus of powe... and space behind the rescaling of contemporary social, economic and political life. Organized into three sections on theorizing scale, the discourses and rhetorics of scale, and scales of activism. Will stimulate discussion about how conceptions and visions of scale inform all aspects of social life.
