"With this book, the history and historiography of modern geography - always engaging and much revitalised of late - will be invigorated yet further. At once a work of scholarly research, sensitive biography and theoretical enquiry, Complex Locations places women where they have always been in British geography - at its heart. It will interest many and deserves to be widely read."
Charles W J Withers , University of Edinburgh

"This book is based on highly original and scholarly research and fills a notable absence in historiographies of Geography. It will be a valuable addition to debates about gender and feminism within the discipline."
Cheryl McEwan , Durham University

"As the first book length study of early women geographers in Britain, Complex Locations will be essential reading for feminist geographers and historians of the discipline. Drawing on wonderfully rich and original archival research, the book explores the important but often forgotten work of women as academics, educationalists and travellers in shaping British geography since the nineteenth century. By studying their lives and work through its engaging biographical and contextual analysis, the book is vitally important not only in illuminating the long history of geographical work by women, but also in understanding the history of the discipline and the gendered production of knowledge more broadly."
Alison Blunt , Queen Mary, University of London
