Review

As a platform for thinking about geography as a cultural literacy, I recommend this title to any teacher who is considering exposing his or her students to the fundamentally different ways in which geographical thought has been Constructed.   (New Zealand Geographer, 13 August 2014)

On the whole, this is a very good book that will deserved by widely deployed in history and philosophy of geography courses. A quick second edition with a revised.   (Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography, 7 July 2014

This is absolutely the type of book I wish I had been given at the beginning of my own geographical education.   (Cultural Geographies, 1 October 2013)

Nevertheless, the author has reduced what is complex to a very readable level that will be of utility to students of geography and the history of science. Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper–division undergraduates and above.  (Choice, 1 October 2013)

Review

Cresswell s introduction to Geographic Thought is everything such a book should be: open and honest, wise and witty, accessible and engaging. Offering an intelligent guide to the history of geographical theory, Cresswell s thinking is consistently clear, concise and critical. Bold in its conception and sure of its grasp of this rich and contested intellectual terrain, the book shows the value of geographical ideas in coming to terms with our common humanity and examining our place in the world. Peter Jackson, University of Sheffield

Geographic thinking has become a many–splendoured thing, unable to be captured by conventional bounds. But Tim Cresswell does the best job of anybody so far in giving it shape and direction. Publishers always write that this or that book is indispensable but this one really is. Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick
