Review

As a platform for thinking about geography as a culturalliteracy, I recommend this title to any teacher who is consideringexposing his or her students to the fundamentally different ways inwhich geographical thought has been Constructed. (New Zealand Geographer, 13 August 2014) On the whole, this is a very good book that will deservedby widely deployed in history and philosophy ofgeography courses. A quick second edition with arevised. (Singapore Journal of TropicalGeography, 7 July 2014 This is absolutely the type of book I wish I had beengiven at the beginning of my own geographicaleducation. (Cultural Geographies, 1 October2013) Nevertheless, the author has reduced what is complex to avery readable level that will be of utility to students ofgeography and the history of science. Summing Up:Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. (Choice, 1 October 2013)
