Book Description:

Economic Geography is a comprehensive introduction to this growing field, providing students with a vibrant and distinctive geographical insight into the economy. It identifies patterns of economic activity across space, explores the role of economic scale, and sets out both contemporary approaches and classical theories. Each chapter investigates a single topic using a clearly defined economic-geographical perspective.Topics addressed include everything from uneven development, commodity chains, technology, and agglomeration, to the commodification of nature, states, transnational corporations, labour, consumption, economic cultures, gender, and ethnic economies. The text engages students with case studies from a variety of sectors around the world, and features sample essay questions, and an annotated list of further reading.
