Articulations of Capital offers an accessible, grounded, yet theoretically-sophisticated account of the geographies of global production networks, value chains, and regional development in post-socialist Eastern and Central Europe.

  • Proposes a new theorization of global value chains as part of a conjunctural economic geography
  • Develops a set of conceptual and theoretical arguments concerning the regional embeddedness of global production
  • Draws on longitudinal empirical research from over 20 years in the Bulgarian and Slovakian apparel industries
  • Makes a major intervention into the debate over the economic geographies of European integration and EU enlargement

From the Back Cover:

For more than two decades, Eastern and Central Europe have undergone dramatic economic shifts in response to social and political upheaval and the repositioning of Europe within the global marketplace. Articulations of Capital offers a theoretically engaged and empirically grounded examination of the changing economic geographies of post-socialist Europe and the many ways in which those transformations have shaped and continue to shape the institutions, economies, and livelihoods of people in the region. Drawing on over 20 years of empirical research in the Bulgarian and Slovakian apparel industries, this book develops a new theorization of global value chains as part of a conjunctural economic geography and lays out a set of conceptual and theoretical arguments concerning the regional embeddedness of global production.

The ideas and arguments presented in this book will reinvigorate and cast new light on debates over the economic geographies of European integration and EU enlargement, making Articulations of Capital essential reading for anyone interested in better understanding this region and its role in the global economy.
