An introductory primer to the field of logistics.

In a globalized economy, new strategies, architectures, and technologies organizing flows of resources, goods, persons, and services have been developed, resulting in the development of a new market logic and even a new science. Logistics hasn't just altered our infrastructure and our landscapes, but also standardized labour laws and politics all over the globe. It has grown obvious that the word "logistics" covers more than the mere articulation of production and consumption. This is why it has become more urgent than ever to understand the history and logic that has driven this new force that has so deeply impacted our daily lives and reshaped our planet. How do the concepts of space, movement, agency, governance, and calculation shift in this regard? Presenting new insights and key classic views on the genealogy, theory, and critique of logistics, this volume explores alternative narratives in the historiography of infrastructure and globalization--and even mankind itself in the era of the Anthropocene.

Edited in dialogue with Laurent de Sutter
