John Urry's latest book - Offshoring

Date: 6 March 2014

Offshoring by John Urry (to be published April 2014, Polity Press) explores the powerful and pervasive worlds that have been generated offshore and the huge challenges these pose both for governments and for citizens. Documenting the various patterns of offshoring - of the economy, sociability, politics and the environment - this book sheds fresh light on the dark side of globalization. Urry concludes by considering whether offshoring can be reversed - whether it is possible to bring about the systematic 'reshoring' of relations that would be good for democracy and for developing low-carbon futures.
