About this book

Peripheries emerge as a result of shifts in economic and political decision-making at various scales. Therefore peripheral spaces are not a “natural” phenomenon but an outcome of the intrinsic logic of uneven geographical development in capitalist societies. Discussing examples from Germany, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Iraqi Kurdistan, Pakistan, India and Brazil, the volume describes the social production of peripheries from different theoretical and methodological perspectives. In so doing, it argues in favour of a re-politicization of the recent debate on peripheralization.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“In compiling 14 articles all dealing with processes of spatial differentiation but differing in regional focus and theoretical approach, the editors want to highlight the conceptual potential of peripheralization, its applicability in different regional contexts and the highly political issues it influences. … the volume can be recommended to anyone interested in diverse approaches concerning the critical empirical analysis of processes of peripheralization.” (S. Rettberg, Geographica Helvetica, Vol. 69, 2014)
