Leviathan Undone?

Towards a Political Economy of Scale

Edited by Roger Keil
Caught in the trap of the nation-state and frozen in postwar bloc logic, critical political economy has been found wanting when it comes to problematizing space and scale. Globalization and the prominence of world cities and regions have shaken the foundations of contemporary social science and fostered a new interest in the concept of scale. Leviathan Undone? brings together leading theorists and scholars from a variety of disciplines to develop a new language of scale, space, and topology. By treating scale as an important form of spatialization, the contributors bring a new sensibility to classical and contemporary concerns in Canadian and international political economy, ranging from the role of the nation-state to aboriginal governance, and from public health to child care. This groundbreaking volume will be of interest to students and scholars of social science and anyone interested in politics, geography, globalization, and political economy.
