Geography of Capitalism

Globalization Lived Locally: A Labour Geography Perspective by Neethi P, New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2016; pp xvii+231, ₹795.

Globalization Lived Locally provides a labour geography perspective of different forms of labour in Kerala and their active participation in the production processes and in the creation of social relations of productions to draw the geography of capitalism. The entire study by Neethi P is inspired by the pioneering work of Herod (1997). It is a genuine attempt to understand the process of globalisation in local spaces through the lens of labour. That the space of labour is not homogeneous as it is generally shown in both neoclassical mainstream economic theory and also in the orthodox Marxist discourse, is quite obvious in Neethi’s work.
