Product description


"This volume invites the readers to rethink globalisation by showing how the ideas about relative scale and the instruments that embody those ideas are spreading from one place to the next. By putting to such good use the notion of translation, the book's many authors reveal size itself to be a highly contested resource. A relativist book in the best sense of the word." Bruno Latour, Professor, Ecole des mines de Paris, France
