Sample text

This incorporation is accomplished by means of an explicit spatial strategy. Constantly shifting commodity chains anchor the division of labor in each geographical periphery, yoking that periphery into endemically unequal exchange relations with core regions either directly, or via the mediation of an ever-changing cast of semiperipheral locales (Weisband 1989). The dichotomy of homogenizing universality and the heterogeneity of the particular is thus removed from the realm of culture and recast as neoimperium versus resistance.

And of course, contention implies highly variable outcomes: neither globalities nor their respective fields of origin are all equal in scope, scale, gravity, and acumen. The result of this asymmetry is currently manifested as the hegemony of financescapes, and their conditioning of global space into gradated hierarchies of cores and peripheries. In total, this grounding of globalization theories yields what might be called a chaotically relativized world system, one consisting of multiple, ever-shifting, alternate globalities with highly differentiated spheres and degrees of dominance.

In relativization theory, compression puts the problematic of how societies construct themselves relative to one another at the center of globalization. For Robertson, compression is the growing interdependencies between peoples and places, structuring the world as a whole and bringing societies into increasingly interpenetrative contact. Through compression, previously separated societies are brought (or forced) into enduring contact and so create globalization. g. Harvey 1989), or Anthony Gidden’s (1991) idea that similar developments “stretch” societies across time and space to produce time-space distanciation.
