Geographies of Economies
by : Jane Wills
Setting out to explore the intersections of economy and geography, this text brings together contributions from international economic geographers. Nearly 40 leading practitioners in the fields of geography, political economy and sociology explore the wide-ranging and complex changes in the economic geographies of the contemporary world and the diverse responses to these changes within their disciplines. Highlighting and illustrating contemporary developments, the book opens up discussion about the implications of the complex geographies involved. In pointing to new directions of research and debate, it demonstrates the central relevance of economic geography not only in understanding the trajectories of change but in proposing alternatives.
