More About the Author

I live in Ireland where I work in a research institute and am a regular media commentator on social and planning issues. I'm the author of four novels, the latest of which is STUMPED, and dozens of short stories. In addition to writing crime fiction, I'm the author or editor of 23 academic books and a 12 volume encyclopedia. I write for three blogs - 'The View from the Blue House' (about crime fiction), 'Ireland After NAMA' (about Ireland and the crisis) and 'The Programmable City' (about software, big data and smart cities).

I thought the other reviewer was a bit unfair to rate this book on the basis of it not been quite what they thought it would be. This book is only meant to give a brief overview, but I have found it consistently useful dip into when writing essays etc. Worth a look.

Format: Paperback
This is more like a reference book, an encyclopedia of thinkers on space, it is worth having for research for essays etc but is presented in a bullet point format; it has great access to key points on specific thinkers but there is no discussion and little in the way of context.

Definitely not an easy read! Very difficult for an a2 level student, I'd recommend having a dictionary at hand! Probably good stuff, just have to get my head around it.

Not quite what I thought it would be but is good as a reference book to dip into as and when needed.

A must-read for the budding Geographer 17 Jan. 2007
By Eric B. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm working on my PhD in Geography. This was a required text for a first-year graduate seminar on "History and Theory of Geography". This book gives a biographical sketch of numerous recent luminaires in Geography. The book is easy to read because it's broken down into nice nuggets of information about a specific Geographer and makes mention of how their work relates to other Geographers also in the book. Granted, it's not comprehensive, but it does give a good foundation in the theories behind modern Geography.

If you are into Geography (with a capital-G) and not just geography, buy this book. Even if you don't read it right away, it'll find a comfortable spot on your bookshelf.
