Back cover copy
In a clear and accessible format, leading authors provide a guide to research across the relevant topics of economic geography since the original companion was published, focusing on developments of the past ten years and drawing on the expertise of a new generation of scholars.
In three sections, the book examines the evolution of economic geography, reviews recent work, and explores areas of overlap between economic geography and cognate disciplines.
It addresses the growing diversity of the field, its increasingly international make-up, and the major areas of debate, including economic questions about what societies produce and consume; political questions about how governance shapes production and consumption; and social and cultural questions about how identities shape economic processes.
The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Economic Geography presents students and researchers with a comprehensive overview of the state of the field, from a prestigious editorial team, with contributions from an international cast of prominent scholars.
