Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The editors have done an outstanding job of representing, through the collection of chapters in the Companion, economic geography in all its guises, with chapters being authored by both more and less senior figures (albeit as the editors admit with a bias toward the Euro-American world in terms of where the scholars practice) . . . indeed, through the efforts of the editors to assemble a broad array of contributors, and in turn the endeavors of these contributors to capture the vibrancy, relevance, and importance of scholarship in their areas, the Companion manages to effectively portray a subdiscipline that economic geographers will recognize and many outsiders will (one hopes) be intrigued and excited by.” (Economic Geography, 7 October 2013)

“This most recent Companion to Economic Geography is an impressive reminder of the diverse, restless nature of economic geography in meeting its mandate to describe, explain and shape the remarkable (and changing) geographic diversity of the global economy and its integration.” (Regional Studies, 1 July 2013)

“The Companionis an excellent and timely contribution that simultaneously maps the past, present, and possible futures of economic geography. The Companionis an important text for all geographers, not just those willing to call themselves ‘economic’." (Geographical Research, 1 May 2013)
