Review:

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 relevance of the arguments marshaled. Accessible and informative, it should be indispensable reading for every geography major. Teachers will enjoy using it. Editors and authors alike are to be congratulated on an impressive achievement. Kevin R. Cox, Professor of Geography, 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

From the Back Cover:

The second edition of this popular collection 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. The volume provides students with a series of critical insights into the economic, political, social, cultural, and ecological dimensions of change at every geographical scale from the global to the local.

For the updated edition several new topics have been added in order to keep the text contemporary. New material has been incorporated on economic changes relating to world trade and labor, on political changes in the post–Cold War era and geopolitics, on social and cultural changes relating to children, race, consumption, and cyberspace, and on changes in environmental governance. In addition, the editors have written a new essay to introduce the volume which provides a distinctive geographical take on globalization. Existing chapters have been revised or rewritten as necessary.
