Geographic Thought

An accessible and engaging introduction to geographic thought

In the newly expanded Second Edition of Geographic Thought: A Critical Introduction, renowned scholar Tim Cresswell delivers a thoroughly up-to-date and accessible examination of the major thinkers and key theoretical developments in the field. Coverage of the complete range of the development of theoretical knowledge--from ancient geography to contemporary theory--appears alongside treatments of the influence of Darwin and Marx, the emergence of anarchist geographies, the impact of feminism, and myriad other central bodies of thought. This latest edition also includes new chapters on physical geography and theory, postcolonialism and decoloniality, and black geographies.

The author emphasizes the importance of geographic thought and its relevance to our understanding of what it means to be human and to the people, places, and cultures of the world in which we live. This new edition contains:
* New examples throughout consisting of contemporary research from a wider range of geographical contexts and by geographers from diverse backgrounds
* Comprehensive explorations of physical geography that combine updated coverage from the first edition with brand new material
* Updated discussions of spatial science and quantitative methods that include considerations of the role of place and specificity in quantitative work
* In-depth examinations of the Anthropocene, the uses of assemblage theory, and the emergence of the GeoHumanities.

Perfect for students of undergraduate and graduate courses in geographic thought, Geographic Thought: A Critical Introduction will also earn a place in the libraries of students and scholars researching the history and philosophy of geography, as well as practicing geographers.
