520    This book considers the transformative impact of global 
       trade and production networks on local economies, work and
       labour organisation, andnotions of 'community'. The idea 
       of 'community' and the transformationof its various forms 
       and meanings under globalisation is the subject of 
       considerabledebate in the disciplines of anthropology and 
       sociology.Parallel to this interest, there is a growing 
       body of research from economic geographers, political 
       economists, and labour studies scholars on how global 
       trade and corporate production networks are re-shaping 
       economies, regulatory structures, labour organisation, and
       the lives of workers. This volume utilises comparative 
       analysis and case studies to engage with these themes, by 
       examining socio-economic transformation in Asia and the 
       restructuring of manufacturing industries, ports, the 
       information technology sector, and small to medium scale 
       commodity production networks. This book is essential 
       reading for all interested in developmentstudies, 
       political economy, Asian studies, industrial relations and
       labour studies.&|160; &|160;
