About this title

Synopsis:

"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.
