This book provides a very valuable introduction to key concepts in economic geography for undergraduate students. It will appeal both to those students attracted to more conventional explanations, as well as those interested in more critical ideas.
very well structured textbook, appropriate for 1st year undergraduates
a thoughrough yet accessible reader to help students ground their studies by exploring core concepts. It is also a useful guide for structuring introductory lecture series.
The book is useful for a quick overview over key concepts. I found it useful for structuring course contents, since it covers both cultural/social as well as organizational/economistic topics. The essays are too short and broad though, to be sufficient as (exclusive) key reading texts.
a new dutch book was recently published.
I find that this book gives a good overview and discussion of central themes within economic geography. I like that I have to find most of the illustrations myself. Yet, a short illustration of each of the classical model could be helpful to the students.
The nice thing about this text is that it is concise but with depth in its coverage. A must have for any library, and a useful desk reference for any serious student of economic geography or political economy.
Book presents in a concise way an efficient explanation of a range of core concepts in economic geography.
