Editorial Reviews

Review

`a state-of-the-art review of the subject at the millennium ... One of its strengths is that among these authors there are at least nine economists including Paul Krugman and Michael Porter who in recent years have made stimulating contributions to the subject ... This will be a valuable book for all advanced students of economic geography at universities and for academics in the field.' Chris Law, Geographical Association, July 2001

`it will be a valuable curriculum companion from which students will gain a great deal, whether guided, or exploring it in their own time ... the Handbook is a valuable collection and should be purchased for academic library shelves wherever spatial analysis is performed.' Phil Cooke, European Planning Studies, Vol.9, No.5, 2001

"As the IT revolution runs its course, the old ideas that were useful guides to understanding twentieth-century economic regionalization and trade have been supplanted by a new conceptual apparatus. The Oxford Handbook of Economic Geography provides a comprehensive introduction to this apparatus that will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, as well as to those instructors whose teaching was based in the ealier lore...an impressive, comprehensive introduction to a rapidly evolving field that is located where geography and economics intermingle." Brian J L Berry, School of Political Economy, University of Texas at Dallas

An excellent overview of the intellectual ferment that characterizes contemporary economic geography, highlighting new approaches and perspectives amid continuing debates about the degree to which economics and geography are complements or substitutes for one another. Irwin Feller, Intercollege Research Program, Pennsylvania State University

This is an excellent and much needed collection. It will make an important contribution to social science broadly, particularly geography and economics. The editors are highly regarded scholars in their own right. The contributors are the luminaries in the field; particularly notable is the fact that the editors have attracted leading economists in addition to the top economic geographers. This will make the volume truly unique and much valued. Richard Florida, Center for Economic Development, Carnegie Mellon University

Whether scholar or student, this book is the place to come for comprehensive, critical, reflective and futuristic writing on economic geography. Together, these contributions define the field in all its dynamism, negotiating world-reshaping events from globalism to localism, technological change to new regional politics. Ann Markusen, Hubert Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota
