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.& 60; & 60;
