"This timely volume comprehensuvely summerises the various approaches to research that have come to constitute contemporary economic geography. Expert assessments provide a lively sense of the research frontier making this essential reading for all who seek to understand and appreciate the field."

"One of the best economic georgraphy texts in recent years, covering both the history of the discipline and outlining areas for future research... The quality of the chapters remains high throughout and many can and should remain as future reference for research and/or teaching."
- Pedro Marques, Journal of Economic Geography

What difference does it make to think about the economy in geographical terms? The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography illustrates the significance of thinking the ′economy′ and the ′economic′ geographically. It identifies significant stages in the discipline′s development, and focuses on the key themes and ideas that inform present thinking.

Organised in sections with multiple chapters, The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography is a complete overview of the discipline that critically assesses:

  • Location, the quantitative revolution and the ′new economic geography′
  • Geographies of globalization and capitalism
  • Geographies of scale/place and the local/global
  • Geographies of nature, agriculture, sustainable development and the political ecology
  • Geographies of uneven development, economic decline, and money and finance
  • Geographies of consumption and services
  • Geographies of regulation and governance, neo-liberalism and welfare.

Placing the discipline in vivid historical and contemporary context, The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography is a timely, essential work for postgraduates, researchers and academics in economic geography.
