Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A wonderfully rich and invigorating mapping of late modern geographies; essential reading for anyone striving to understand the complexity and diversity of the contemporary world at the end of the twentieth century – Geographies of Global Change is clearly written, rigorously argued, and gripping reading. It redefines what we mean by a ‘textbook' and sets new standards for teachers and students alike.” John Pickles, Professor of Geography, University of Kentucky

“This book is a remarkably coherent collection and altogether a significant accomplishment. It is notable for the high standards achieved by the individual contributions and also for the contemporary relevance of the arguments marshaled. Accessible and informative, it should be indispensable reading for every geography major. Teachers will enjoy using it. Editors and authors alike are to be congratulated on an impressive achievement.” Kevin R. Cox, Professor of Geography, Ohio State University

“There is no better text for helping to grasp the breadth of issues implied by global change, and for getting a sense of what needs to be done.” Neil Smith, Professor of Geography, Rutgers University
