What difference does it make to think about the economy in geographical terms? The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography illustrates the significance of thinking the ′economy′ and the ′economic′ geographically. It identifies significant stages in the discipline′s development, and focuses on the key themes and ideas that inform present thinking in economic geography.
Organized in sections with multiple chapters, The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography is a complete overview of the discipline that critically assesses location, the quantitative revolution, the "new economic geography"; geographies of globalization – making sense of globalization and its consequences; the geography of capitalism; geographies of scale and place: local and global, space and place; geographies of nature: agriculture; sustainable development; the political ecology and the social construction of nature; geographies of uneven development: economic decline; technology; money and finance; geographies of consumption and services: formal and informal spaces of consumption; the culture industries; performance and geographies of regulation and governance: neo-liberalism, regulation, welfare.
Placing the discipline in vivid historical and contemporary context, The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography is a timely, essential work for graduates, researchers and academics in economic geography.

Andrew Leyshon is Professor of Economic Geography at the University of Nottingham.Review:
This timely volume comprehensuvely summerises the various approaches to research that have come to constitute contemporary economic geography. Expert assessments provide a lively sense of the research frontier making this essential reading for all who seek to understand and appreciate the field.--Eric Sheppard
A powerful, persuasive, imaginative, and relevant synthesis of a sub-discipline. Part historical reconstruction, part survey of the varied domains of economic geography (from location and uneven development to economies of nature and spectacle), this book bristles with the ideas that have shaped thinking - and practice - on the geographies of economic organisation. It is a must read not only for geographers but also other people, disciplines and practices interested in the spatial dynamics of the modern economy.--Ash Amin
A high-quality collection of individual scholarship, characterized by a critical, persuasive and thought-provoking engagement with economic geographies... This explicit and critical engagement with political and social relations in economic geography gives the handbook its particular flavour and sets it apart from others in the field.--Lars Coenen
One of the best economic georgraphy texts in recent years, covering both the history of the discipline and outlining areas for future research... The quality of the chapters remains high throughout and many can and should remain as future reference for research and/or teaching.--Pedro Marques
