Product Description

Review

The best encyclopaedic tool for human geographers since the Dictionary of Human Geography. It is hugely useful for students who want an easy way to access the roots of the major themes and debates in contemporary geography
Stuart Aitken
San Diego State University


Space is now at the forefront of the social sciences and humanities. This compendium sets out the twists and turns of the thinkers who brought us to this place. In doing so, it sets out an effervescent intellectual landscape. Invaluable

Professor Nigel Thrift
Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick


A most welcome and expanded version of the original Key Thinkers, this work more than any other guides readers through the complex theoretical landscape of space and place. An outstanding volume that articulates, through analyses of the visionary writings of some of the most important theorists in and beyond geography, the migrations of thought produced around our most important objects of analysis. The contributors excel in this effort
Professor John-Paul Jones III
University of Arizona, USA


The second edition of Key Thinkers on Space and Place sharpens and refines its project. Written in highly accessible language, the book will be a dependable source of inspiration and reflection to anyone with an interest in space and place as knowledge categories
Professor Richard Le Heron
University of Auckland, New Zealand


This is a helpfully updated version of an already well-researched and accessibly written text. As with the first edition, this version is invaluable for anyone seeking to understand the life and work of key thinkers who have shaped the "spatial turn" in the social sciences. It recognizes the contributions of those from all the major intellectual traditions from positivism to post-structuralism, and from a variety of disciplines, from geographers, anthropologists, economists, philosophers and more. And it consciously acknowledges intellectual traditions beyond the Anglo-American academy
Lily Kong
Professor of Geography, National University of Singapore


An accessible, authoritative and comprehensive introduction to the individuals who have shaped contemporary geographical thought. The book covers an impressive and thought-provoking selection of thinkers and writers, representing a variety of traditions and approaches. Each of the sixty-six entries provides a lively summary of the subject's life and work, and an expert critical analysis of their contribution to spatial theory. Key Thinkers on Space and Place is an invaluable reference resource for students of Human Geography and anyone interested in the development of spatial theory
Professor Michael Woods
Aberyswyth University

Format: Paperback
The book is a reference marvel. The Thinkers included are mostly geographers from a variety of theoretical and methodological orientations, but also included are sociologists (e.g., Giddens), psychologists (Golledge), and philosophers and social theorists (e.g., Bhabha). Each entry provides biographical details, an overview of the person's work, and then a separate section specifically related to space and place. This is particularly useful given that the extent of different thinkers' interest in spatiality differs, as some devoted their entire careers to issues of space and place, and for some it was more of a side or occasional interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful introduction to the topic of Space and Place 19 Oct. 2016
By Pattyto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like that for each entry, you are presented with the biographical context of the theorists/philosophers, a summary of their main propositions (so you can see how their ideas have evolved throughout their careers), a concise explanation of their ideas about space/place, and the criticisms against that idea. You also get a bibliography on the theorists/philosophers work and a bibliography of the critics who have refuted these key thinkers. It is a very useful resource!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great, easily understood anthology of brilliant thinkers 21 Jun. 2013
By AiRenee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best reference books on thinkers of space and place I have ever read. On each thinker, a brief yet rich description is given about them and their ideas, as well as a succinct summary of their influence on thinking about space and place. Invaluable resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars What about Milton Santos ? 29 Jun. 2012
By LUIS Bahiana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Browsing the contents of this book i was astonished that , among many geographers and social scientists pictured in this book the name of Muilton Santos (1926-2001) was forgotten.Santos a Brazilian geographer who had a degree in law, became known for pioneer works in various fields in geography, notably urban development in developing countries, as well as pioneer books on the globalization, and on the Nature of Geographical Space.
