Editorial Reviews

“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)
