This text provides a comprehensive introduction to social geography - the discipline that is traditionally concerned with social relations and the spatial structures that underpin them. This book takes this approach as a starting point to analyze inequality and oppression, and welfare issues which affect people's lives at both ideological and material levels. It explores the relationships between the social, economic, political and cultural spheres of geography, approached through their historical development within a theoretical framework influenced by radical, feminist and postmodern geographical thought.
