The SAGE Handbook of Social Geographies
SAGE Publications, 2010 - Social Science - 614 pages
"With clarity and confidence, this vibrant volume summons up 'the social' in geography in ways that will excite students and scholars alike. Here the social is populated not only by society, but by culture, nature, economy and politics."
- Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick
"The book aims to be accessible to students and specialists alike. Its success lies in emphasizing the crossovers between geography and social studies. The good editorial work is evident and the participating contributors are well-established scholars in their respective fields."
- Miron M. Denan, Geography Research Forum
"An excellent handbook that will attract a diversity of readers. It will inspire undergraduate/postgraduate students and stimulate lecturers/researchers interested in the complexity and diversity of the social realm.... As the first of its kind in the sub-discipline, it is a book that is enjoyable to read and will definitely add value to a personal or library collection."
- Michele Lobo, New Zealand Geographer
The social relations of difference - from race and class to gender and inequality - are at the heart of the concept of social geography. This handbook reconsiders and redirects research in the discipline while examining the changing ideas of individuals and their relationship with structures of power.
Organised into five sections, the SAGE Handbook of Social Geographies maps out the 'connections' anchored in social geography.
This will be an essential resource for academics, researchers, practitioners and postgraduates across human geography.
