"An exciting, comprehensive and accessible introductory text to economic geography which will excite, engage and capture the imagination of students." (Journal of Economic Geography)
“At last, an accessible, engaging, well-written, student-friendly economic geography textbook. The real beauty … is the quality and clarity of the writing.” (Times Higher Education)
"Covering the variety and complexity of the multiple themes and sub-themes that constitute the undergraduate field of economic geography to a functional level, requires a very meticulous, succinct and well-versed narrative - something which this book achieves with a great deal of verve... Any lecturers looking to revamp their core book choice for any economic geography module, to a book that can engage students and force them to think critically and spatially about the economic world around them, would be hard pushed to find a better contribution than this." (Economic Geography Research Group)
“A very strong overview of the contemporary economic debates … keeps the interest levels high.” (Oli Mould)"Economic Geography: A Contemporary Introduction brings teaching and learning in economic geography into the twenty-first century. Nothing like it has been written before. The text uses the whole world for its illustrations, and its open-minded theoretical sensibility resonates perfectly with the discipline. Economic geography has a text appropriate for the world in which we now live."
–Trevor Barnes, University of British Columbia
"At long last, a new, innovative, thought-provoking, introductory economic geography text – one that combines current theoretical insights with an impressive array of issue-based empirical examples drawn from across the world. Challenging and stimulating – Coe, Kelly, and Yeung have set a new standard."
–Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
