"Lorimer and Withers offer biographies of ten geographers that focus on the link between state politics and geography. A group of geographers from Europe, the US, and Japan profile physical geographers in Britain and the Netherlands; a geographical publicist from late nineteenth-century America; a French population and regional geographer; a Japanese political geographer; a geographical editor and pioneering woman geographer from early twentieth-century Britain; and a Scots-born explorer of early nineteenth-century West Africa. They include Marion Newbigin, Jacqueline Beaujeu-Garnier, Gudmund Hatt, Peter Heylyn, Tibor Mendol, and Koji Iizuka." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
