about this item

This book offers critical, state of the art reflections of value as it is theorised, applied, and critiqued. This book examines how value comes to feature in contemporary society; how it is figured, operationalized, endorsed, and contested. This book demonstrates the eclectic epistemic foundations and imperatives of value, with contributions exploring: Marxist and post-structural theories of value, the ways values and value frameworks are embodied in our everyday habits, how spatial scales explicitly inflect notions of value and reciprocally serve as discursive containers through which value gets assigned, and contestation of value regimes. With contributions from leading figures within the field, this book demonstrates the fluidity of value across a range of geographic locales and disciplines.
