Geographies of the New Economy: critical reflections (2007), a book that I co-edited with Peter Daniels, Mike Bradshaw and Jon Beaverstock, is now available in paperback through Routledge’s print-on-demand service. While at $44 it’s much cheaper than the hardback (which is priced at an eye-watering $130) it still seems expensive for a paperback (well in the UK at least due to the collapse of the £ against the $!), especially when the point of POD is to lower costs by preventing the over production of books in the first place. Nevertheless, given the subject of the book it’s appropriate and welcome that it is now available in a new format and at a lower price through the application of digital technoogy.
