520    Extending the frontiers of commodity chain research, this 
       distinctive volume includes original work from major 
       figures in sociology, history, geography, and labor 
       studies. It underscores the wide and interdisciplinary 
       appeal of chain approaches for analyzing the economic, 
       social, and political dimensions of international trade 
       and production networks. Commodity chain analysis sheds 
       light on the political and ecological implications of 
       economic globalization and on how activists in pursuit of 
       social justice, workers' rights, and environmental 
       protection can use it. Following a substantive review of 
       literature in the field, the collection goes on to examine
       theoretical and methodological debates over how to conduct
       research on global commodity and value chains, how power 
       is exercised through these chains, and how global economic
       activities are coordinated across space. The result is a 
       rich and unusually coherent volume that demonstrates how 
       commodity and value chain analysis is informing 
       contemporary research in a variety of fields
