About the Author

I am a human geographer with exceptionally wide-ranging interests. Over the years, in different professional capacities, I have had the opportunity to study a diverse plethora of topics in economic, political, and social geography. Running throughout this panoply is my interest in political economy as it pertains to the construction of space and place. I have consciously sought to position myself within the discipline at the intersections of traditional economic geography and contemporary social theory. I have found keeping a leg in each camp to be rewarding and fruitful. In this vein, my work straddles traditional quantitative, empirical approaches on the one hand and contemporary, qualitative, theoretical perspectives on the other.

Reviews

"It can take the reader far into the discipline, helping the beginning student to gain a foothold and guiding the researcher toward the more technical literature of geography. General adult readers interested in the topic will also find much of value in this work, which would be most suited to an academic library′s geography collection or a large public library with a strong interest in geography."--Sarah Watstein (1/4/2007 12:00:00 AM)
"The Encyclopedia of Human Geography provides a scholarly and intellectually challenging overview of the topic, as well as specific explanations of the linkage between geography and social, economic, and political issues. Larger academic libraries that support classes in geography will want to add it to their list."--Against the Grain (2/12/2007 12:00:00 AM)
"This work is very well indexed. It includes contemporary ideas, theories, and topics at the expense of older standards, such as central place theory. It would be a most desirable addition to collections supporting graduate programs."--D. Liestman (2/12/2007 12:00:00 AM)
