"a text that usefully and thematically summarises an extant body of knowledge. Any tertiary student, new researcher or reluctant colleague wanting to understand the contribution of feminist geography to the discipline will find easy access to that story in the highly readable narrative that Linda McDowell has composed. Gender, Identity and Place has a strength that is often lacking in multiply authored or thematically focused texts. The cohesion of the argument is not simply evident in the introduction and conclusion but is threaded through each of the substantive sections theoretically, empirically and stylistically." Robyn Peace, University of Waikato, Journal of Interdisciplinary Gender Studies
