"…engages incisively with what consideration of scale can offer to a wide range of crucial social, physical, and cartographic issues – from environmental monitoring to urban development – and provides an essential starting point in terms of the uses and meanings of the concept." John Agnew, University of California Los Angeles
"This volume is both timely and welcome. As society faces a new world order that reflects the increasing tension and simultaneity between local and global forces, it is essential to lay the foundations toward a comprehensive ‘theory of scale’. This volume, through its integration and contemplation of disparate ideas drawn from the spectrum of geographical perspectives, is a crucial first step toward that grand agenda." Bernie Bauer, University of Southern California
"This is a fascinating book...it covers an intimidating array of subjects but shows how one aspect - scale - can affect all of them in surprisingly similar ways. The depth and breadth of coverage makes the text an invaluable one." Dr Paul Ganderton, Teaching Ecology News.
"This book is important reading for all geographers based on its catholic content and because it provides a lens into our diverse discipline. Few edited collections contain such consistently strong chapters. Scale and Geographic Enquiry is recommended for all geographers, especially graduate students and their instructors." The Geographical Journal
