Seeing ports at the center of global capitalism.

International politics scholar Laleh Khalili explores shipping ports at the nexus of global power - where workers, machines and commodities operate under the dictates of the global economy, and the adaptive, expansive nature of capitalism itself.

Laleh is author of the book Sinews of War and Trade: Shipping and Capitalism in the Arabian Peninsula from Verso.
