"This impressive anthology brings together the warring factions of American geographical theory - Marxism versus Postmodernism. Key figures of the Italian geographical tradition contribute a bold initiative to move geographical debates into line with current scientific standards. Their work, rarely available in English, is a 'must read' for those concerned with the representation of global flows and with cartographic practice." Professor Rob Shields, Carleton University
"What is perhaps genuinely new about the book is its introduction of a number of Italian geographers' 'takes' on the topic, including Giuseppe Dematteis, Franco Farinelli, Vincenzo Guarrasi and Claudio Minca." Eric Laurier, University of Glasgow, Progress in Human Geography, Vol. 26<!--end-->
