Producing places.

Hudson, R. (2001) 'Producing places.', New York: Guilford Press.


This book synthesizes a vast body of theory and research on production in capitalist societies. Ray Hudson considers both the specific sites in which production occurs, such as factory, office, and home, and the production of places in which we live as socialized human beings. Building on and refining contemporary Marxist analysis, Hudson also draws on regulationist, institutional, and evolutionary perspectives. He provides an innovative understanding of the variety of organizational and spatial forms that production can take, the ways these are governed and regulated, effects on social and political arrangements, and implications for the natural world. The book is illustrated with examples and evidence from across the global economy.
