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, the "new economic geography"
• Geographies of globalization - making sense of globalization and its consequences; the geography of capitalism
• Geographies of scale and place: local and global, space and place
• Geographies of nature: agriculture; sustainable development; the political ecology and the social construction of nature
• Geographies of uneven development: economic decline; technology; money and finance
• Geographies of consumption and services: formal and informal spaces of consumption; the culture industries; performance
• Geographies of regulation and governance: neo-liberalism, regulation, 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.
