Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[This is] a collection of articles not on Doreen Massey’s work, but rather on how different scholars and activists, many of them Massey’s colleagues and friends, have developed their own ideas informed by hers … Gathering together a bunch of colleagues, activists, artists and political figures, each contributor offers an overview of how their main concerns relate to, or have benefited from, Massey’s concepts. For the scope and significance of her ideas seem to have been enormous; just think of the very different disciplines that have benefited from her spatial vision (take only the ones present in the book: political science, sociology, anthropology, and psychology, even the arts, not to mention the practice of politics itself) … Here we have a group of scholars … taking Massey’s work in new and exciting directions, and we have eighteen excellent examples of how to do it.” (Antipode , 1 September 2013)
