Neil Brenner has in the past few years made a major impact on the ways in which we understand the changing political geographies of the modern state. Simultaneously analyzing the restructuring of urban governance and the transformation of national states under globalizing capitalism, 'NewState Spaces' is a mature and sophisticated analysis of broad interdisciplinary interest, making this a highly significant contribution to the subject.

Editorial Reviews

`This book represents a major contribution to the literature. It very nicely brings together and expands upon the now large volume of writing dealing with rescaling processes and state theory, and in doing so it both provides new forms of theoretical knowledge and adds to the current debateon urban governance.'Annals of the Association of American Geographers, 2006
