The second edition of this popular text presents 28 specially commissioned essays by leading geographers from across the world, addressing questions about how and why the world has changed, is changing, and will continue to change.
Reviews of the previous edition: "A wonderfully rich and invigorating mapping of late modern geographies; essential reading for anyone striving to understand the complexity and diversity of the contemporary world at the end of the twentieth century - Geographies of Global Change is clearly written, rigorously argued, and gripping reading. It redefines what we mean by a "textbook" and sets new standards for teachers and students alike." John Pickles, Professor of Geography, University of Kentucky. "This book is a remarkably coherent collection and altogether a significant accomplishment. It is notable for the high standards achieved by the individual contributions and also for the contemporary relevances of the arguments marshalled. Accessible and informative, it should be indispensable reading for every geography major. Teachers will enjoy using it. Editors and authors alike are to congratulated on an impressive achievement." Kevin R Cox, Professor of Geography, The Ohio State University. "There is no better text for helping to grasp the breadth of issues implied by global change, and for getting a sense of what needs to be done." Neil Smith, Professor of Geography, Rutgers University. Second edition- "This is an excellent collection which more than maintains the high standards of the first edition... has been expanded and revised to take into account changes over the last six years, changes that are substantive in character, as well as changes in emphasis in the ongoing and broader debate about globalization. Always clear in its arguments, it takes the fertile theme of globalization in all its variety of expression, to demonstrate the many and nuanced ways in which geography matters. It will appeal particularly to undergraduates but it is a book from which we can all learn something." Kevin Cox, Ohio State University
