"This is a bold book which gives no quarter to halfway opinion and mediocre thinking. The book is laid out like a textbook, surveying alternative approaches in a systematic manner, but Werlen's intention is to argue that contending approaches are actually complementary and so to elucidate the sociological bases for a social geography . . . It will rank in its thoroughness with such classics as those by Castells, Lefebvre and Harvey."
-Rob Shields, Carleton University
"This book argues in an original and intriguing way for an action-oriented theory of social geography."
-Nigel Thrift, Bristol University
