ANNALS of the Association of American Geographers. "This is a very useful book for students and others who are unfamiliar with the current 'isms' in contemporary radical thought - not just in geography, but in the social sciences in general ... contains an excellent survey of the origins and growth of radical human geography ... relatively jargon free and very readable." Andrew Ryder, University of Portsmouth "This is an impressive work of erudition, written with authority and conviction." Progress in Human Geography "Modern Geographical Thought is the last, great and definitive work translating philosophy into human Geography" Alisdair Rogers,School of Geography and the Environment, Oxford University.
