About the Author

Andrew Herod is Professor of Geography, Adjunct Professor of International Affairs, and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, at the University of Georgia, USA. He has written widely on issues of globalization and labour politics. His books include The Dirty Work of Neoliberalism: Cleaners in the Global Economy (with Luis Aguiar) (Blackwell, 2006), Geographies of Power: Placing Scale (with Melissa Wright) (Blackwell, 2002), Labor Geographies: Workers and the Landscapes of Capitalism (2001), Organizing the Landscape: Geographical Perspectives on Labor Unionism (1998), and An Unruly World? Globalization, Governance and Geography (with Gearoid O Tuathail, and Susan Roberts) (1998). He is also an elected official, being a member of the government of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia.


Herod presents in a concise manner a number of critical perspectives on globalization in a way that makes them easily accessible without dumbing them down. ( CHOICE , October 2009) "An important introduction to the debates about the geography of globalization. Critical but never shrill, the book works unerringly to expose and render intelligible the intellectual and practical pressure points that are the result of the multiple processes of globalization. As good a starting point as any you'll find." Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick "Writing for an upper level undergraduate readership, Andrew Herod has produced a challenging critical interpretation of geographies of globalization that is both historically informed and geographically sensitive." Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
