From the Back Cover:

The study of inequalities is the cornerstone of social geographicresearch. Social Geography explores how urban and ruralspaces are organized in ways that construct and maintain socialinequality.

Social geographies of difference are introduced with an emphasison critical human geographic inquiry. These stem from feminist,Marxist, postcolonial, and poststructuralist concerns, with a keyfocus on how differences become fixed, naturalized parts ofeveryday experience. The book cuts across various approaches to seehow new subjectivities emerge over time. A global perspective ismaintained throughout, drawing on experiences, theories, and ideasfrom the global north and global south.

Expanding on the debates that inform current social geographicresearch and theory and interrogating the historical development ofsocial geography, this introductory text provides an analyticframework for theorizing difference in its myriad forms.
