Book Description

This reader introduces students to examples of the most important research contributions to economic geography in recent years. In its structure and content, it mirrors Blackwell's Companion to Economic Geography and it can be used either to complement that volume or as a stand-alone text. The reader opens with an editorial introduction, summarising the nature of contemporary economic geography, explaining the volume's structure, and discussing what it means to take a critical approach to geography. The readings themselves are grouped into five sections, each of which is also prefaced by an editorial commentary, placing them within a critical framework. Suggestions for further reading are included to enable students to investigate particular topics further. The editors are all highly respected international authorities on economic geography.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"...represents some of the most important milestones in the development of contemporary economic geography....an essential reference point for beginners and specialists alike." Gordon L. Clark, University of Oxford <!--end-->

"Brings to life the vibrancy, excitement and passion of economic geography. Crisp and provocative introductions divide the reader into five thematic sections, and the selections themselves will spark debate in the classroom. This will be required reading in any serious undergraduate geography program and a coveted resource for students at any level." Altha Cravey, University of North Carolina

"This is a wonderful showcase of the depth and breadth of the vibrant and unruly field that is economic geography. Although nominally an accompaniment to A Companion to Economic Geography, this book more than stands on its own merits as a critical journey through some of the most important moments and impulses of economic geography thinking." Andrew Leyshon, University of Nottingham

"...manages to combine a strong sense of the intellectual diversity of contemporary economic geography with an awareness of the key questions whic define the scope of the discipline." Keith Chapman, University of Aberdeen
