Within the international agri-food community at least four theoretical targets are attracting increasing attention. They are: the established notions of network and commodity chain that are being revisited by way of critical engagement informed by the insights of in depth empirical work, the metrics of calculation and institutional embedding that underpin the rise and functionality of governance technologies, the place of regional networking in creating conditions that make possible agri-food producer participation in local provisioning and supply, and the geo-historical dimensions of interconnection and interdependency in the agri-food sphere. This volume brings together an interdisciplinary team of anthropologists, economists, buinsess and management academics and geographers to examine a wide range of case studies illustrating various agri-food commodity chains and networks around the world and to discuss how these link globally.
