Editorial Reviews


"Perhaps not since David Harvey's Explanation in Geography(1969) had the field been so thoroughly and rigorously examinedthrough literatures both within and outside the discipline."ANNALS of the Association of American Geographers.

"This is a very useful book for students and others who areunfamiliar with the current 'isms' in contemporary radical thought- not just in geography, but in the social sciences in general ...contains an excellent survey of the origins and growth of radicalhuman geography ... relatively jargon free and very readable."Andrew Ryder, University of Portsmouth

"This is an impressive work of erudition, written with authorityand conviction." Progress in Human Geography

"Modern Geographical Thought is the last, great and definitivework translating philosophy into human Geography" AlisdairRogers,School of Geography and the Environment, OxfordUniversity.

From the Back Cover

Richard Peet looks in detail at the main trends in human geographicthought over the last thirty years, relating these to broaderthemes in philosophy and social theory. Beginning with existentialphenomenology and humanistic geography, the book covers Marxism andradical geography, structuralism, structuration theory, realism,locality studies, various streams of poststructuralism andpostmodernism, and feminism.

Each chapter examines a few theories in depth, concentrating onthe major works and the nature of their contribution. Many of theideas covered are dense and complex, but the reader is drawngradually into the text through notions understandable to students.After spending time with this book the reader should be able totackle virtually any philosophical theme in contemporary geographicthought.

The book will be central to courses in geographical thought andthe history of geographical thought, and as part of virtually allcourses in human geography whcih entail philosophy and theory.
