With intellectual roots dating to the nineteenth century // economic geography has traditionally sought to examine the spatial distributions of economic activity and the II jS PrinciPles that account for them. More recently, the field has turned its attention to a range of questions relating to: globalization and its impact on different peoples and places; economic inequalities at different geographic

Now more than ever the changing fortunes of peoples and places demand our attention. // * // v4- // // Economic Geography provides a stimulating and innovative introduction to economic geography by establishing the substantive concerns of economic geographers, the methods deployed to study them, the key concepts and theories that animate the field, and the major issues generating debate, this book is the first to address *> the diverse approaches to economic geography as well as the constantly shifting economic geographies on the  ground. It encompasses traditional approaches, albeit from a critical perspective, while providing a thorough, // ? accessible and engaging examination of the concerns, methods and approaches of the ’new economic geography’.  ¦ This unique introductory text covers the breadth of economic geography while engaging with a range of 4/ // contemporary debates at the cutting-edge of the field. // // > // Written in an accessible and lucid style, this book offers a thorough and systematic introductory survey.
