  • Development Tourismby Rochelle Spencer

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Tourism in Cuba - described by Fidel Castro as 'the evil we have to have' - has been regarded both with ambivalence, and as a crucial aspect of development and poverty alleviation. The result is a remarkable approach to tourism, one which often compels tourists to become agents of development through solidarity. Drawing on her experiences of working... more...

  • Losing Paradiseby Tammo Steenhuis; Gail Holst-Warhaft

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Taking a uniquely interdisciplinary view of the Eastern Mediterranean region's water problems, this book considers some of the technical and regulatory solutions being proposed or implemented to solve the difficulties of diminished or polluted water supplies. Stressing the importance of traditional and historical cultural understanding in addressing... more...

  • Geographies of the Bookby Charles W.J. Withers; Miles Ogborn

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The geography of the book is as old as the history of the book, though far less thoroughly explored. Yet research has increasingly pointed to the spatial dimensions of book history, to the transformation of texts as they are made and moved from place to place, from authors to readers and within different communities and cultures of reception. Widespread... more...

  • Mobility and Placeby Jørgen Ole Bærenholdt; Brynhild Granås

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The Northern peripheries of Europe, which are covered by this book, are associated with remoteness, the frontier, isolated communities, colonialism and resource extraction. Recently, huge projects in petroleum and hydropower have been located there, and the region has become better known as an attractive tourist destination. Although these spaces are... more...

  • Food Fearsby Alison Blay-Palmer

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The industrial food system of the West is increasingly perceived as problematic. The physical, social and intellectual distance between consumers and their food stems from a food system that privileges quantity and efficiency over quality, with an underlying assumption that food is a commodity, rather than a source of nourishment and pleasure. In... more...

  • Placing the Border in Everyday Lifeby Reece Jones; Corey Johnson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Bordering no longer happens only at the borderline separating two sovereign states, but rather through a wide range of practices and decisions that occur in multiple locations within and beyond the state?s territory. Nevertheless, it is too simplistic to suggest that borders are everywhere, since this view fails to acknowledge that particular sites... more...

  • Foreign Direct Investment, Agglomeration and Externalitiesby Jacob A. Jordaan

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    By critically appraising current theories of both Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and agglomeration, this book explores the variety of links that exist between these two externality-creating phenomena. Using in-depth empirical research on Mexico, Jacob Jordaan constructs and analyzes several datasets on Mexican manufacturing industries at various geographical... more...

  • Everyday Culture in Europeby Máiréad Nic Craith; Ullrich Kockel

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    This book discusses the history and contemporary practice of studying cultures 'at home', by examining Europe's regional or 'small' ethnologies of the past, present and future. With the rise of nationalism and independence in Europe, ethnologies have often played a major role in the nation-building process. The contributors to this book offer case... more...

  • Geographies of Obesityby Karen Witten; Jamie Pearce

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Over the past two decades, rates of adult and childhood obesity in the developed world have risen sharply. By the year 2000, 65% of the United States population were overweight, 30% of these obese. Whilst medical treatment has tended to focus on individual habits of diet and exercise, this approach does little to account for globally increasing levels... more...

  • Geographies of Rhythmby Tim Edensor

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In Rhythmanalysis, Henri Lefebvre put forward his ideas on the relationship between time and space, particularly how rhythms characterize space. Here, leading geographers advance and expand on Lefebvre's theories, examining how they intersect with current theoretical and political concerns within the social sciences. In terms of geography, rhythmanalysis... more...
