Globalisation, the State and Regional Australia (Public and Social Policy Series) Kindle Edition
‘If we are to understand global capital, neoliberalism and the state in meaningful ways, we must understand them as they
operate in, and on, particular places and people.’ Amanda Walsh
Globalisation is an inescapable term in the 21st century, but its real meaning is often difficult to pin down. This book sheds new light on the political and economic implications of globalisation by
examining the lived experience of a particular region: the Shoalhaven area of New South Wales, where two iconic Australian industries – dairying and manufacturing – struggled to survive in the face of global competition.
Drilling down through layers of theory,
policy and politics, Amanda Walsh surveys how globalisation has played out in regional Australia. Using industry case studies, she explores how decisions made at a national level have affected regional communities, and considers the role of the state in promoting and mediating globalising forces.
'[This] is an engaging new book, relating general observations about the political economy of globalisation to specific issues in Australian regional development.' -- Frank Stilwell, Journal of Australian Political Economy, iss. 81 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
