About The Book

Two decades after the publication of the seminal Models in Geography, edited by Richard Chorley and Peter Haggett, this major collection of specially commissioned essays charts the new human geography from the perspective of political economy. Providing surveys of recent trends in theory, bibliographic guides to the literature, and pointers to advances and frontiers in thinking, the book ranges from cultural to economic and urban geography. The authors explore the connections between political economy and geographical thought in each area, with the emphasis lying on the processes of material production and social reproduction. All students of geography will find this book to be essential reading, and it will provide insights into the best of contemporary geography for social scientists in general.
