The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Economic Geography presents students and researchers with a comprehensive overview of the field, put together by a prestigious editorial team, with contributions from an international cast of prominent scholars.

  • Takes a prospective as well as retrospective look at the field, reviewing recent developments, recurrent challenges, and emerging agendas  
  • Incorporates diverse perspectives (in terms of specialty, demography and geography) of up and coming scholars, going beyond a focus on Anglo-American research 
  • Encourages authors and researchers to engage with and contextualize their situated perspectives 
  • Explores areas of overlap, dialogues, and (potential) engagement between economic geography and cognate disciplines
