"Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways."
- Peter Dicken, University of Manchester

"Stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre."
- Sallie A. Marston, University of Arizona

"Captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit... This is a stand-out among handbooks!"
- Lily Kong, National University of Singapore

"This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography’s character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns."
- Alexander B. Murphy, University of Oregon

"This SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography ...  essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world."
- Eric Sheppard, UCLA

Published in association with the journal Progress in Human Geography, edited and written by the principal scholars in the discipline, this Handbook demonstrates the difference that thinking about the world geographically makes.

Each section considers how human geography shapes the world, interrogates it, and intervenes in it. It includes a major retrospective and prospective introductory essay, with three substantive sections on:
  • Imagining Human Geographies
  • Practising Human Geographies
  • Living Human Geographies
The Handbook also has an innovative multimedia component of conversations about key issues in human geography – as well as an overview of human geography from the Editors.

A key reference for any scholar interested in questions about what difference it makes to think spatially or geographically about the world, this Handbook is a rich and textured statement about the geographical imagination.

About the Author:

Roger Lee is Emeritus Professor of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London. He is an economic geographer interested in the connections and contradictions between the presumed hard logics of economy and their socio-cultural practice and in the possibilities for progressive change that might ensue from the latter.

Review:

This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography’s character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns. The result is a set of reflections that highlights the richness and insight of contemporary human geographical thinking. The book challenges readers to think in new ways and to recognize the sophistication, reach, and possibility of human geographic inquiry.

(Alexander B. Murphy)

Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways. Full of surprises and unexpected diversions. It truly epitomises ′progress′ in human geography. (Peter Dicken)

While geography as a discipline has recently experienced a proliferation of handbooks, compendia, dictionaries and encyclopedias, the Handbook of Human Geography stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre. Collected here are not the usual broad overviews, but a more penetrating set of pieces that treat not so much the "what" of human geography but the "how"; that is, it asks the reader to deliberate on the key practices in which human geographers are engaged and their central relevance not only to comprehend but also to intervene in and transform worlds.

(Sallie A. Marston)

This will be an incredibly useful resource for all those interested in what it means to imagine, think and act geographically. The Handbook captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit, highlighting the significance of geography in contributing to an understanding of these worlds and in shaping everyday practice. At the same time, the editors and authors emphasise and explore the relations between human geography and other disciplines and invite debates on these boundaries. All readers, whatever their disciplinary backgrounds, will find much to stimulate their thinking, and will appreciate the breadth of insight. This is a stand-out among handbooks! (Lily Kong, Professor of Geography)

"Notwithstanding the flood of handbooks and companions that has beset the discipline, this SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography. Its focus--on keywords, rather than the usual sub-disciplinary categories; on thinking and acting geographically, rather than on bounding a discipline; on engaging across the breadth of human geography, within not just between contributions; and on praxis, in ways that exceed the conventional academic predilections―has generated essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world."

(Eric Sheppard)
