Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book provides a clear-sighted, critical and even-handed introduction to this most troubled and troubling terrain.”
Peter Jackson, University of Sheffield

Geographies and Moralities honours David M. Smith for his sustained contributions in this area, and illustrates the diversity and relevance of contemporary geographical reflections on moral issues.”
Jim Proctor, University of California, Santa Barbara

“David M. Smith is among the first geographers to give serious and sustained thought to the relationship between geography and morality. This book is a collection of essays that originated as a tribute to his life and work. And a worthy collection it is. Each contribution is a thoughtful and caring expression of how, due to Smith's inspiration, a particular part of that researcher's interests now bears on moral issues.”
Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Volume 96 Issue 1, March 2006
