Derek Gregory's Spaces is a short, theoretically sophisticated, and interdisciplinary introduction to the topic of space. The past fifteen to twenty years has seen the so-called "spatial turn" across the social sciences and humanities, yet no prominent scholar has written a key theoretical introduction to the topic. Spaces addresses that shortcoming with a book that is equivalent to Terry Eagleton's classic Literary Theory: An Introduction.
The chapters are divided thematically: a history of space, productions of space, spatial practices, and performances of space. In between each section is a portfolio of images and ideas associated with them.
