The Geography of the World Economy provides an in-depth and stimulating introduction to the theory and practice of economic geography. Giving emphasis to the 'globalisation' of the world economy and its interactions with both developed and developing countries, this textbook offers a consideration of local, regional and global economic development over the long historical term.
Fully illustrated throughout, this new edition has been thoroughly reworked and updated to take account of the substantial changes in the world economy since the appearance of the second edition in 1994. Extending its coverage of world cities, labour markets, and the international financial system, the third edition also includes new material on commodity chains, women in development, tourism, sustainable development, the global office and the informational economy.
