Fortunately, to the benefit of students young and old, the reflexive ruminations contained between these covers are fresh, penetrating, honest, personal and, at times, poignant. They are sure to stimulate a long-overdue reawakening of interest in methodological choice and its consequences in economic geography. In doing so, the contributors to this volume have performed an incredibly valuable service on behalf of economic geographers everywhere. -- Meric S. Gertler
