"Wood and Roberts have produced a refreshing and comprehensive introduction to how economic geographers try to understand the changing world. This book, wide ranging both in its theoretical coverage and use of examples from diverse contexts, illustrates how more recent approaches have drawn from and reacted to previous rounds of theoretical endeavour and economic change. From understanding the roots of economic geography through to current cutting edge debates, students will find this book an invaluable aid." Dr Jane Pollard, CURDS, Newcastle University, UK. "Economic Geography is the only contemporary text to engage constructively between the different approaches that characterize 'economic geography'. Clearly written and replete with up to date examples, students are challenged to deepen their understanding. Readers will appreciate the fundamental questions that economic geographers ask concerning the world and the economy, and gain novel insights into the uneven geographies of contemporary capitalist globalization." Professor Eric Sheppard, Department of Geography, University of Minnesota, USA.
