Editorial Reviews

Review

‘This book not only sheds light upon how geography disciplines its subjects, but also on how society is disciplining the subject of geography.’ Dr Jonathan Pugh, Senior Academic Fellow in Territorial Governance and Director of "The Space of Democracy and Democracy of Space" network, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

'A prescient and critical analysis of the changing face of geography
teaching. This book deserves to be widely read and debated. Alex Standish's book puts current trends in geography teaching in historical and critical context. It comprises a forthright and timely defence of geographical education for its own sake.'
Dr Jim Butcher, FRSA, Department of Sport Science, Tourism and Leisure, Canterbury Christ Church University.

‘For geographers across the globe this book provides the arguments for a return to the teaching of geography and why they should reject the politicisation of the subject by education policy makers and politicians. Standish’s careful critique shows the necessity of a depoliticised geography curriculum the irony of which would be that it would ensure that every child could point to Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan on a map.’ Prof. Dennis Hayes – Oxford Brookes University, UK
