From the Back Cover:

Geographical Thought provides a clear and accessible introduction to the key ideas and figures in human geography. Divided into twelve chapters, the book provides an essential introduction to the theories that have shaped the study of societies and space. Opening with an exploration of the founding concepts of human geography in the nineteenth century academy, the authors examine the range of theoretical perspectives that have emerged within human geography over the last century from feminist and Marxist scholarship, through to post-colonial and non-representational theories. Each chapter contains insightful lines of argument that encourage readers towards independent thinking and critical evaluation.  Supporting materials include a glossary, visual images, further reading suggestions and dialogue boxes.

 

‘Nayak and Jeffrey have succeeded in breathing life into a topic that too many students shy away from as dry or difficult. This book looks set to change all that.’ 

David B. Clarke, Professor of Human Geography, Swansea University

 ‘Geographical Thoughtgives an ambitious overview of the state of affairs in Human Geography … this magisterial book … has resulted in a work that is anything but cold or humdrum. Filled to the brim with insights, clear conceptual definitions, useful references, elucidating boxes, illustrations and maps, Geographical Thought promises to become the defining textbook for every geographer interested in the reworkings of culture in contemporary Human Geography. And in my view, that should include everyone.’

Ewald Engelen, Professor of Financial Geography, University of Amsterdam

 

‘This book should become a core text for all students getting to grips with the flow of new ideas and theories in contemporary human geography. It is admirably clear, comprehensive and intellectually lively.’

Alastair Bonnett, Professor of Social Geography, Newcastle University

 

Dr Anoop Nayak is Reader in Social and Cultural Geography in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology at Newcastle University

Dr Alex Jeffery is  Lecturer in Human Geography in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology at Newcastle University
