The social relations of difference - from race and class to gender and inequality - is at the heart of the concept of social geography and this handbook reconsiders and redirects research in the discipline while examining the changing ideas of individuals and their relationship with structures of power. Organised into five sections, the SAGE Handbook of Social Geographies maps out the 'connections' anchored in social geography:

Difference and Diversity builds on enduring ideas of the structuring of social relations and examines the ruptures and rifts, and continuities and connections around social divisions.

Geographies and Social Economies rethinks the sociality, subjectivity and placement of money, markets, price and value.

Geographies of Wellbeing builds from a foundation of work on the spaces of fear, anxiety and disease towards newer concerns with geographies of health, resilience and contentment.

Geographies of Social Justice connects ideas through an examination of the possibilities and practicalities of normative theory and frames the central notion of Social geography, that things always could and should be different.

Doing Social Geography is not exploring the 'how to' of research, but rather the entanglement of it with practicalities, moralities, and politics.

This will be an essential resource for academics, researchers, practitioners and postgraduates in geography, sociology and cultural Studies.
