‘The strong academic editorship and the editorial board, drawn from across the discipline, were a major attraction to the RGS-IBG Book Series. I felt the editor and board were in a great position to evaluate the proposal and help me to enhance the project. I also felt the Series' strong position in geography would help to frame and support the book's intended contributions. The association with a major publisher gave me confidence in the production and promotion of the book - there's a long line of very good books in the series, and several great books in political geography, by people whose work I know, cite and teach. I knew I'd be happy if my book could follow and sit alongside them. The process was great, from start to finish, across all of the academics, RGS and Wiley people who were involved. The RGS and Wiley were super supportive and helpful once the project was approved, all the way through writing, revision, publication and follow up. I'm really happy with the finished product. There are lots of images of artworks in the book and the quality of reproduction is fantastic. The cover art and design and the production quality overall really seem to draw people in.'

‘It was an absolute delight and honour for On Shifting Foundations to be part of the RGS-IBG Book Series. I was attracted to the Series' stellar history of publishing high quality monographs, and following my publication journey, I can understand why the Series is highly regarded: the review process is rigorous and engaging, which reflects the editorial team's clear commitment to advancing geographical scholarship. Without this process, my manuscript would not have been sharpened and improved, and I am extremely grateful to the reviewers, editorial board and editor (Dave Featherstone) for offering constructive and encouraging feedback. Once the final manuscript was submitted, the production team at Wiley was highly professional and flexible, which made the process seamless. Publishing with the RGS-IBG Book Series has been intellectually exciting and stimulating, and I am very proud to recommend it to economic and political geographers who are seeking an impactful platform to shape future debates.'

‘I was delighted to have Global Asian City: Migration, Desire and the Politics of Encounter in 21st Century Seoul published by the RGS-IBG Book Series. The series attracted me through its reputation for publishing geography monographs and edited collections of the highest calibre, authored by some of the leading contributors to contemporary geography. With a range of publication formats the RGS-IBG Series is also attractive for its accessibility; readers or libraries can access books in paperback, hardcover and e-book versions from the first date of publication, substantially increasing accessibility and impact. The editors of the series and the staff at Wiley provided superb support with incisive and constructive feedback on my proposal and manuscript alongside careful and sensitive copy-editing and production that led to a superb outcome. I am very proud to be part of this esteemed series and would recommend it to any author who wants to publish theoretically informed and empirically rich geographical research.'

‘I feel that publishing Transnational Geographies of the Heart with the RGS-IBG Book Series was a great choice. I was lucky that a colleague suggested it since I would not have seen my work as geographical enough and was intimidated by the status of the other authors in the series. Having experienced the supportive proposal and review process, I would now strongly recommend it to those writing their first monograph. I was impressed by the communication and professionalism demonstrated by the team throughout and grateful for their understanding that personal life may sometimes interfere with the timeline of longer writing projects. Plus, I loved getting a paperback straight away - it makes it a much more accessible option for potential readers. Many thanks again - you were all great!'

‘I was attracted to the RGS-IBG series not only because it had already published a number of monographs that had left their mark on my thinking, but also because of the rigorous review process the series applies. I was not disappointed. The quality of the feedback from the editor, the editorial board and the anonymous referees was exceptionally detailed and helpful. I enjoyed working with Dave Featherstone and with Jacqueline Scott, both of whom ensured a smooth process from proposal to print. Wiley were also accommodating when it came to selling the translation rights for Cryptic Concrete to a German publisher, which I am hugely grateful for. I feel privileged to have my work published in a series that has become known as a hub for innovative research in human geography. The RGS-IBG series comes highly recommended.'
Ian Klinke, University of Oxford
Author of Cryptic Concrete
‘The RGS-IBG Book Series rightly stands out as a flagship mouthpiece for our discipline. Their back catalogue is hugely impressive, in terms of the calibre of authors who already made the grade, the intellectual legacies of their published monographs, and the collection's cross-disciplinary breadth. The editorial team stand out as internationally leading scholars who are highly approachable, supportive and critical - they not only commissioned super prompt reviews (of the proposal, and later the full draft manuscript), but also provided their own commentary reviews of those reviews. I've never experienced that before, and definitely benefited a lot from it. This is a team of geographers, mentoring other geographers, and they give you the space (three-ish years for me) to make your case (all 90,000 words of it!). The quality of feedback, patience, and support were superb throughout - likewise from the experienced publishing team at Wiley-Blackwell. It's vital that other economic geographers get involved and publish their work through this series. I'd be happy to chat with anyone considering it, as it's well worth the investment.'
Al James, Newcastle University
Author of Work-Life Advantage
‘The RGS-IBG Book series is research-led and in that sense offers both a space to communicate recent research and behind the scenes expertise in assisting authors with developing their work. It is unusual to find an academic expert panel as well as referees reviewing your proposal, an editor with expertise in your area and rigorous peer review when you hand over a first draft. The series offers all of this, and the result undoubtedly helps authors to produce the best possible results. Books make statements, about research, about ideas and about key social and environmental questions that are difficult to articulate in journal papers. I highly recommend both the series and the process devised by the editorial board as a means to publish geographical research.'
Steve Hinchliffe, University of Exeter
Co-author of Pathological Lives: Disease, Space and Biopolitics
‘The RGS-IBG Book Series not only has an international reputation for publishing conceptually and empirically rich research, but it has also established an invaluable space for geography monographs. Titles in the series have long inspired and informed my own research and thinking, and are regularly on my reading lists for students. It was the first place I thought of when putting together my monograph, and I am really delighted that Rehearsing The State was published in the series. It's been a real pleasure working both with the editors of the book series and with the staff at Wiley. The process from proposal submission through to production has been smooth, efficient and professionally handled at every stage. Having academic editors is becoming a rarity in contemporary publishing, and their guidance, alongside the detailed feedback from referees, made the whole experience both intellectually rigorous and wonderfully supportive. I can't recommend the series highly enough to other authors.'
Fiona McConnell, University of Oxford

‘I was first attracted to the series not only by its quality but also by recommendations given to me by some of the most high profile academics writing about geography today. The material in the book series is diverse, intellectually provocative and empirically rich. Each book is well produced in a careful and sympathetic way. Working with the RGS team has been extremely helpful in all areas - they are a very dedicated and professional outfit, and are also very good at being able to work with academics who are under a range of different pressures and constraints. I would certainly recommend the series to others as a way to showcase geographical academic work.'

‘The RGS-IBG Book Series has become one of the foremost publications for quality innovative and accessible geography monographs that reach beyond the discipline. I was attracted to the series because of this reputation, but also because of the excellent reviews shared by colleagues as previous authors. I wanted to work with a publisher that would put the manuscript through its paces and the academic editor and review process at RGS-IBG guaranteed that. From submission of the initial proposal through to their post publication engagement with the book the editorial team have been fantastic. The quality of the final publication has been greatly enhanced by the constructive discussion and care taken by the editorial team and referees, and the publication process was made incredibly smooth thanks to responsive and clear communication at every stage by Wiley Blackwell. I am very proud of the book, and have already recommended the RGS-IBG Book Series to future authors.'

‘Over the past decade or so, the RGS-IBG Book Series has established an international reputation as a leading publisher of theoretically innovative and empirically rigorous research in geography. I was absolutely delighted to publish my first book with the series and to have the space to develop a project in such depth and detail. The editorial team provided excellent guidance and constructive support at every stage of the process. Their encouragement and commitment to the project was invaluable and helped to shape the final book. The publication of research monographs is a vital part of what we do as geographers and I would strongly recommend the RGS-IBG Book Series to prospective authors.'
Alexander Vasudevan, University of Nottingham
Author of Metropolitan Preoccupations
‘I was attracted to the RGS-IBG Book Series for a variety of reasons. First, it has established a good reputation by publishing some excellent work in the past that is recognized in and beyond geography. Second, it is a superb outlet for publishing research monographs. Third, the prices of the books are quite affordable, which is not the case for similar products of other publishers out there. The latter is particularly point important in a world where question of access to academic knowledge have moved to the forefront of the debate.
I really have to commend the various Series Editors! The Series has published high-calibre books since its inception. It has covered a broad range of topics in geography, without getting 'lost in space', since all books published are rigorously theoretically informed and often take a critical look at the some of the big questions of our time, from north-south trade relations over to the material politics of resource-extraction to the global information revolution. I am particularly delighted that the editors have been keen on supporting studies on regions neglected by many geographers, such as Africa, the Caribbean or Central Asia. This at least partly rebalances the geography of geographical knowledge production.
If you are interested in publishing a cutting-edge, theoretically informed research monograph with a critical outlook on some of the big questions of our time with a highly committed team, then the RGS-IBG Book Series is the right place for you!'

‘I was delighted that the RGS-IBG series published In the Nature of Landscape: Cultural Geography on the Norfolk Broads, not least as one of the starting points of the book was research published on the origins of the broads in 1960 through an earlier RGS research series. The current series is vitally important for geography in giving a space for the publication of research which is at once theoretically challenging and empirically rich. The editorial team provided excellent guidance and support to develop work along these lines. The refereeing process was especially supportive and constructive in this respect, and improved the finished book. I would certainly recommend the RGS-IBG book series to other prospective authors.'
David Matless, University of Nottingham
Author of In the Nature of Landscape
‘It would be hard to underestimate the importance of the RGS-IBG monograph series for the development of the discipline. Some commentators have argued that the academic monograph is in long-term decline, but the evident success of the series demonstrates that it is, at best, premature to draw this conclusion. I was particularly attracted to the series because it has played such a vital role in the development of research and scholarship in political geography over the last decade. A good part of the series' success derives, I suspect, from the quality of the support given to authors. The editorial board and the series editors have promoted the publication of innovative work, while remaining alert to the interests of a broad readership. In my experience, their comments were both constructively critical and highly generative, and I am enormously grateful for their input. Numerous minor issues can emerge during the completion of any manuscript, but the editorial team of Wiley Blackwell were always responsive to my requests, and efficient in the best possible way. Navigating the final stages proved to be a pleasure.'
Andrew Barry, University College London
Author of Material Politics
‘The RGS-IBG monograph series offers precisely the kind of focus on scholarly quality that is too often compromised in today's excessively market-led publishing business. The series stands out in its pursuit of academic excellence, its promotion of state-of-the-art geographic work to broad audiences within and beyond academia, and its support to authors. I chose the series for its reputation for quality, its global reach and, last but not least, the exemplary professionalism of the editorial response early on. At the end of the project, I can testify that the support continued throughout the review, production, and marketing process. Information moved quickly, editorial assistance was prompt and responsive, and my preferences concerning the form and content of the book always received full attention at Wiley. The series is vital for geography and fully deserves its reputation.'
Merje Kuus, University of British Columbia
Author of Geopolitics and Expertise
‘In this age of market-led publishing, there are very few outlets for authors who want to publish high-quality monographs that truly contribute to the pursuit of social scientific knowledge. The RGS-IBG series is outstanding; it offers ground-breaking studies that explore pressing issues such as global justice, state-building/conflict and the urgent challenges we face in our consumer-driven world. It was a pleasure to work with the RGS and series editors. They offered important suggestions and criticisms that shaped the direction of my book, and I am very pleased with the outcome. I recommend that other authors contribute to the series, particularly those interested in expanding the field of geographical and related knowledges.'

‘We were delighted when the editors of the RGS-IBG Book Series accepted our proposal for a book on the New Zealand fashion industry, and we are very proud to be part of such a great catalogue. We felt fully supported as we completed the book manuscript across two countries, multiple visits, and several missed deadlines. Colleagues at Wiley Blackwell were very professional and we are extremely happy with the final version. We would highly recommend this book series; it offers strong intellectual vision, understanding and sympathy, and absolute professionalism all in one package. What more could any author ask for?'

‘It has been a pleasure to work with the team involved with the RGS-IBG Book Series. From beginning to end the process has been professional, with clear information at all stages, and, what is always close to an author's heart, speedy progress through all the stages. The initial guide to submitting a proposal is excellent and reviewers feedback more than helpful. Once the text is submitted, there is clear guidance through all the stages, from careful and courteous copy editing, to advice about illustrations and the cover. All the author has to do is write the book.'
Linda McDowell, University of Oxford

‘In a geographical publishing market which is increasingly focused around handbooks and companions, the RGS-IBG Book Series provides an invaluable intellectual space for sustained and rigorous theoretical and empirical work. It was an ideal outlet for a book which sought to critically engage with and take forward Doreen Massey's contributions to geography and to thinking politics spatially. At every stage of the process the editorial team have been unstintingly engaged and helpful, and we would definitely recommend the series to other researchers.'
David Featherstone and Joe Painter

‘The RGS-IBG Book Series has established an enviable reputation for theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich texts in Geography and beyond. Having already drawn so much from existing books - Legg's Spaces of Colonialism and McFarlane's Learning the City come immediately to mind - it was my first choice for an outlet for The Improvised State. The Series Editors handled the submission and reviewing of the proposal and manuscript with care and attention, sharpening the arguments and helping ground the book in the wider discipline. The editorial team at Wiley Blackwell were extremely supportive and engaging, making the publishing process a genuine pleasure. I have already recommended the RGS-IBG Book Series to many colleagues, and will continue to do so, for its international reputation for path-breaking books allied to the care and support in producing the finished texts.'
Alex Jeffrey, University of Cambridge
Author of The Improvised State
‘I was attracted to the RGS-IBG Wiley Blackwell Book Series partly because of the excellent books already published in the series, and partly because of the very positive experiences of working with the editorial team that other authors had spoken of. The editorial team was tremendous throughout the process, and I was very impressed by their readiness to help and support authors. The joint publication of the books in both paperback and hardback has helped give the books accessibility and reach. The series has rightly acquired a high profile within Geography and beyond, and I would definitely recommend the series to other authors.'
Colin McFarlane, Durham University
Author of Learning the City
'We were initially attracted to the RGS-IBG book series because of its reputation for publishing very high quality research monographs. As probably the leading series in British geography it was a very attractive place for us to publish our research on post-socialist cities and everyday struggles over social reproduction. Working with your colleagues at Wiley-Blackwell was very positive. The production and editorial teams had a very professional approach to working with authors and I would not hesitate in encouraging others to publish in this series.'
Adrian Smith, Queen Mary, University of London
Co-author of Domesticating Neo-Liberalism
‘I was attracted to the RGS-IBG book series because of their track record of publishing important and innovative works within geography - Merriman's Driving Spaces and Legg's Spaces of Colonialism were already on my bookshelf. What struck me most about the series was that it published particularly fresh research and ideas which have been able to punch into bigger cross-disciplinary debates very successfully.
Working with the RGS-IBG series editors, editorial board and publishers was, quite simply, brilliant. From its first stages, what appeared to be valued overall was scholarly content, with the belief that if the content was good enough the book would sell itself. I received really useful comments from the editorial board during the book's inception to insightful suggestions from the text's referees.
I am really happy to recommend the series because I'm proud of the final product. I had a great copy editor who helped fine tune my use of language, and with high production values, the book looks and feels really great.'
Peter Adey, Keele University

‘There are relatively few strong geography monograph research series which are of high quality, have international marketing, and include a paperback version, aiding dissemination beyond libraries. I would indeed recommend the series to other authors. Working with the RGS and Wiley-Blackwell was very satisfactory. The series editors were efficient and catholic in their selections, and the publishing team was very supportive, gave fast feedback, and contributed to an attractive final product, with very good reproduction of maps and photos.'
David Ley, University of British Columbia

‘I can say, without reservation, that writing for and publishing with the RGS-IBG Book Series was the most rewarding experience of publication I have so far encountered.
I was drawn to the book series for three main reasons. First, because of its reputation within the discipline for being a showcase for the very best of geographical thought and research. Second, I had previously read a number of volumes within the series and had been impressed with both the quality and scope of the material it appeared to support. Third, the book series appeared to understand the importance of the research monograph.
From the submission of my initial book proposal, to the final publication of my book, I was most impressed with the support and guidance that I was offered by the editors and editorial support team at Wiley-Blackwell. At each stage of production I was given prompt advice and supportive feedback, which made what can be a daunting process incredibly enjoyable. I was also delighted with the published book which was of the highest design and editorial standards.
I would have no reservations in recommending the RGS-IBG Book Series to other authors. Put simply, if you want to publish an extended reflection on your research in a high profile, supportive and efficient outlet, there is no better place than the RGS-IBG Book Series.'
Mark Whitehead, Aberystwyth University
Author of State, Science and the Skies
'The RGS-IBG Book Series attracted me because I felt it was publishing exciting work in geography such as books like John Allen’s Lost Geographies of Power. The series has continued to publish some of the most exciting books in geography such as Mustafa Dikeç's Badlands of the Republic and has now built up a strong profile in the discipline. I was also attracted to the series by the chance to write a research-focussed book that would be published in paperback (and hardback) and thus have the opportunity to reach a relatively wide readership. I have enjoyed working with the series and am very happy with the resulting book.
I very much valued and appreciated the space that writing for the series allowed me to have. The editorial team were very supportive and engaged through the project. Most crucially they gave me the space and freedom to write the kind of book I wanted to write. In a context where there are many pressures which mitigate against the writing and publishing of research monographs this is a very valuable book series.
I would definitely recommend it to other potential authors.'
David Featherstone, University of Glasgow
Author of Resistance, Space and Political Identities
‘An incredibly exciting and supportive publishing environment and a series which conveys both the breadth and the emergent niches of geographical research. The RGS-IBG series has brought together established academics and younger authors in an incredibly well promoted collection. The simultaneous international publication of the books in the UK, USA and Australia, in both hard and paper back, facilitates the wide reach of the books, which are advertised alongside Blackwell's extensive back-catalogue of key geography texts as well as pivotal publications in cognate disciplines.’
Stephen Legg, University of Nottingham
Author of Spaces of Colonialism
‘When looking at potential publishers of my monograph I was immediately drawn to the excellent RGS-IBG Book Series published by Wiley-Blackwell. The books in the series have always been of a consistently high standard, are widely promoted and continue to be widely cited among my colleagues. The series offers academics a truly excellent forum through which to publish new research in a format that is accessible both to academics and wider audiences across the world. From signing my contract, all the way through to publication (and a year later continued promotion by Wiley) I have been highly impressed at the professional and timely manner with which the publishers have dealt with my work and my queries. I cannot recommend the book series highly enough - a truly remarkable series.’
Andrew Tucker, Cambridge University
Author of Queer Visibilities
‘We were attracted to the Wiley-Blackwell RGS-IBG Book Series because of its flagship status - combining a highly regarded publishing house with the UK’s peak Geography entity. The Series attracts authors who wish to make leading contributions to contemporary Geography. It is vitally important for the discipline that opportunities are provided for cutting-edge book-length contributions. In our case, Value Chain Struggles enabled several years of research in India to be brought together in a single output. This provided the scope to link theory with extended empirical analysis. Publishing this material in the RGS-IBG Series meant that the book would attract the attention of researchers across Geography, and not just those interested in either our conceptual arguments, or with interests in India.
We are very happy with the finished product. Production was timely and processes were always clearly communicated. We’d strongly recommend the series to any budding researcher.’
Jeff Neilson and Bill Pritchard

'The RGS-IBG Book Series provides an important outlet for high quality geography research monographs and I was pleased to publish Complex Locations within this prestigious body of work; not least as, grounded within the RGS-IBG, the series seemed a fitting place to engage with women's geographical work and its place within the history of the discipline.’
Avril Maddrell, University of the West of England, Bristol
Author of Complex Locations
'I'm particularly pleased to have had my first book published through Blackwell's RGS-IBG Book Series. This series offered me an opportunity to develop and publish arguments which would not have fit either within the scope of scattered journal publications, or within the remit a book series focused on publishing undergraduate textbooks. Both the series editors and the staff at Blackwell were extremely supportive in helping to sharpen the arguments in the manuscript and prepare it for publication. They have also been fantastic in bringing the book to the attention of potential readers across a variety of disciplines. I am also thrilled to have a book in a series with such an excellent list of publications. I would recommend the series to any authors who wish to publish book-length geographical research which does not fit a narrow 'course text' format.'
Kurt Iveson, University of Sydney
Author of Publics and the City
'I was attracted to the RGS-IBG Book Series because I was familiar with some of the books published in this series. What I have found particularly appealing about them was that they all combined critical theoretical approaches with innovative empirical research. This was the main factor for me to consider the series. Working with the RGS and Wiley-Blackwell proved to be a very pleasant experience, and I am very happy with the quality of the finished product. I would definitely recommend the series to other authors who put emphasis on combining empirical research with theoretical innovation.'
Mustafa Dikeç, Royal Holloway, University of London
Author of Badlands of the Republic
‘Publishing my book as part of the RGS-IBG book series held great appeal to me from the outset since the series succeeded in bringing together an extremely well-regarded publisher with an organization that represents the highest standards of academic research within the discipline of Geography. The high levels of academic rigour associated with both the publishers and the RGS-IBG, while daunting, ensure that all books published as part of the series are ground-breaking and thorough contributions to their respective fields. It’s because of these reasons that I wanted to publish as part of the series.
The quality of the books published to date has been impressive and wide-ranging. I have been particularly impressed by the fact that the book series has not limited itself to publishing books written by the megastars of the discipline but has also seen fit to publish material written by up-and-coming scholars such as myself. The book series, in this respect, fulfils an extremely important role in sustaining the long-term vitality of Geography by enabling younger academics to publish research monographs.
As far as one can enjoy producing a manuscript of over 80,000 words, I enjoyed the experience of working with RGS and Wiley-Blackwell! I had the pleasure of working with two series editors for Human Geography and they provided considerable guidance on the whole process of writing the book. The readers that they appointed, too, gave a lot of useful input on the framing and development of the ideas. The editorial and production team in Wiley-Blackwell were extremely efficient and supportive and ensured that I adhered to all of the deadlines that were set. More impressive than this was the way in which each of these elements meshed together into a coherent whole, which ensured that the process of writing the book was as painless as it could possibly be.
I would definitely recommend the series to other authors. It succeeds in combining the high level of academic quality and kudos associated with the RGS-IBG with the high level of professionalism and efficiency of Wiley-Blackwell. In my opinion, it is at present the premier venue for publishing research monographs in Geography.’
Rhys Jones, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
Author of People/States/Territories
'I was keen to publish my first book within the discipline and the RGS-IBG book series represented something of a flagship series for Geography as a whole. The series has a reputation for publishing high quality, topical scholarship in both physical and human geography. That said, as someone who works with people in other disciplinary arenas, I understood that the series has appeal beyond the confines of Geography and this was an equally important factor for me. It is a book series with a very strong identity and various people within and beyond my own institution had recommended it to me as a potential outlet for my research. The series was (and is) well publicised and represented at key geography conferences and via the web site.
Another central reason that I was attracted to the book series was the nature and quality of the publications that had appeared in the series to date (at the time I was drawing together my proposal). The variety of subject areas covered in the series, which I believe reflects the breadth of research being conducted by geographers across the physical and social sciences today, was also particularly appealing.
The process is extremely efficient. There was a much faster turn around between submission and publication than I anticipated. The review process was transparent, fair and professional, and I found the communication between author, series editors, development editor, copy editor and production editor, was very smooth. The process from submission of the text to publication was explained from the outset and queries I had at different stages in the book's progress through the system were all dealt with promptly and efficiently. The writing of the book was obviously challenging but I enjoyed working with people responsible for the production of the series. I am very pleased with the finished product and very grateful to everyone at Wiley-Blackwell and the RGS-IBG for all their contributions to the production of the book.
I would definitely recommend the series to other authors. I think there has been increasing publicity surrounding the series. It offers an important outlet for scholars at different stages in their academic careers, and encourages submissions from those wishing to write single authored monographs as well as those interested in producing edited volumes. I feel few other book series afford such flexibility. Perhaps most importantly, the series embraces the very significant variety of subjects considered under the broad arena of geographical enquiry and does this very effectively. In my opinion, people from outside Geography, and indeed outside academia, would be able to gain a good sense of the current trends within the discipline by looking at the published or forthcoming titles in the series.’
Georgina H. Endfield, Nottingham University

‘This is a well-respected book series that has good national circulation in geography and related disciplines. The process of book production was dealt with in an efficient and professional manner. We had excellent relations with the series editors and the staff at Wiley-Blackwell were extremely supportive and listened carefully to our requests. We were impressed with the personal way the process was dealt with and felt the publisher was well-informed about our individual project. We would recommend this series to other authors because of the excellence of the finished product and the helpfulness and professionalism of the production team.’

'Blackwell is a quality publisher, and the RGS-IBG brand is a good one to go with given that the book was speaking specifically to a geography readership. This is a really good book series with some innovative books, including John Allen's ‘Lost Geographies of Power’ for example. I really liked working with the team that produced the book. The attitude of the publishers and production team was supportive and helpful - this is a high profile series, produced by a professional team.'
