The impact of economic geography both within and beyond the wider field of geography has been constrained in the past by its own limitations. Drawing together the work of several eminent geographers this superb collection assesses the current state of knowledge in the sub discipline and its future direction. In doing so, the contributors show how economic geographers have offered explanations that affect places and lives in the broader context of the global economy.

Offering a discussion of theoretical constructs and methodologies with the purpose to show the need to combine different approaches in understanding spatial (inter) dependencies, contributors also demonstrate the need to engage with multiple audiences, and within this context they proceed to examine how geographers have interfaced with businesses and policy.

This excellent collection moves economic geography from a preoccupation with theory towards more rigorous empirical research with greater relevance for public policy. With excellent breadth of coverage, it provides an outstanding introduction to research topics and approaches.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is a powerful and valuable contribution to current debates in Economic Geography. For anyone wishing to quickly get up to speed on the current challenges facing the sub-discipline or to understand the multiple positionalities of leading scholars in the field, this book is an essential read. James Faulconbridge, Lancaster University

"...the collection strikingly captures the salient features of economic geography's present incarnation: its fragmentation, its slapdash ways, its lack of agreement about methods, its object of inquiry, and its subdisciplinary boundaries." -- Trevor J. Barnes, Annals of the Association of American Geographers
