Politics and Practice in Economic Geography

À propos

"The biggest strength of the book is its pedagogic design, which will appeal to new entrants in the field but also leaves space for methodological debates... It is well suited for use on general courses but it also involves far more than an introduction and is full of theoretical insights for a more theoretically advanced audience."
- Economic Geography Research Group


In the last fifteen years economic geography has experienced a number of fundamental theoretical and methodological shifts. Politics and Practice in Economic Geography explains and interrogates these fundamental issues of research practice in the discipline.

Concerned with examining the methodological challenges associated with that 'cultural turn', the text explains and discusses:

qualitative and ethnographic methodologies
the role and significance of quantitative and numerical methods
the methodological implications of both post-structural and feminist theories
the use of case-study approaches
the methodological relation between the economic geography and neoclassical economics, economic sociology, and economic anthropology.

Leading contributors examine substantive methodological issues in economic geography and make a distinctive contribution to economic-geographical debate and practice.
