From the Back Cover:

This engaging and accessible introduction to geographic thought explores the major thinkers and key theoretical developments in the field of human geography. Broad in scope, it traces the evolution of the discipline from its origins in classical thought to the most cutting edge theoretical discourses such as non-representational theory. By exploring theoretical underpinnings and current methodologies, Geographic Thought offers thought-provoking insights into a profound discipline concerned with the myriad relationships between people and the inhabited earth.

Themes and topics encountered along the way include the influence of Darwin and Marx, the emergence of anarchist geographies, the impact of feminism, and myriad other important bodies of thought. Readers are not only introduced to key developments in geographical theory, but are exposed to the case for geography as a profound body of ideas that impacts all aspects of our lives – from showing us how to lead a good life to revealing ways to think about inequality and justice.
