Articulations of Capital offers an accessible, grounded, yet theoretically-sophisticated account of the geographies of global production networks, value chains, and regional development in post-socialist Eastern and Central Europe.

  • Proposes a new theorization of global value chains as part of a conjunctural economic geography
  • Develops a set of conceptual and theoretical arguments concerning the regional embeddedness of global production
  • Draws on longitudinal empirical research from over 20 years in the Bulgarian and Slovakian apparel industries
  • Makes a major intervention into the debate over the economic geographies of European integration and EU enlargement
