Features include publication in full colour, highly illustrated with diagrams and photographs integrated throughout. In addition each chapter contains key case studies, learning objectives, textboxes, essay questions, summaries and further reading. The authors present contemporary insights from the field of economic geography drawing on examples from across the globe. As students engage with this highly readable account of the field, they will come away with an understanding of how economic processes are rooted in social, cultural and political realities.
