"Wood and Roberts have produced a refreshing and comprehensive introduction to how economic geographers try to understand the changing world. This book, wide ranging both in its theoretical coverage and use of examples from diverse contexts, illustrates how more recent approaches have drawn from and reacted to previous rounds of theoretical endeavour and economic change. From understanding the roots of economic geography through to current cutting edge debates, students will find this book an invaluable aid." Dr Jane Pollard, CURDS, Newcastle University, UK. "Economic Geography is the only contemporary text to engage constructively between the different approaches that characterize 'economic geography'. Clearly written and replete with up to date examples, students are challenged to deepen their understanding. Readers will appreciate the fundamental questions that economic geographers ask concerning the world and the economy, and gain novel insights into the uneven geographies of contemporary capitalist globalization." Professor Eric Sheppard, Department of Geography, University of Minnesota, USA.


With intellectual roots dating back to the ninteenth century, economic geography has traditionally sought to examine the spatial distributions of economic activity and the principles that account for them. More recently the field has turned its attention to a range of questions relating to: globalization and its impact on different peoples and places; economic inequalities at different geographic scales; and, the development of the knowledge-based economy and the relationship between economy and environment. This text is designed, first and foremost, to provide an introduction to economic geography by establishing the substantive concerns of economic geographers, the methods deployed to study them, the key concepts and theories that animate the field, and the major issues generating debate.It is as much about approaches to economic geography as it is about changing economic geographies on the ground. It encompasses traditional approaches, albeit from a critical perspective, while at the same time providing a thorough and yet accessible examination of the concerns, methods and approaches of the 'new economic geography'.

Lucid and engaging, this is the first introductory text to cover the breadth of economic geography while also engaging with a range of contemporary debates at the cutting-edge of the field. The text is designed to provide a thorough and systematic introductory survey. The pedagogical value of the book has been enhanced by the inclusion of exercises, questions, annotated further reading and websites and numerous examples and cases from across the globe.

Good material 23. März 2012
Von Veronica B - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book provides good and new notions. It has good content, but is too general and the practical cases are limited.
