In its structure and content, it mirrors Blackwell's Companion to Economic Geography and it can be used either to complement that volume or as a stand-alone text. The reader opens with an editorial introduction, summarising the nature of contemporary economic geography, explaining the volume's structure, and discussing what it means to take a critical approach to geography. The readings themselves are grouped into five sections, each of which is also prefaced by an editorial commentary, placing them within a critical framework. Suggestions for further reading are included to enable students to investigate particular topics further. The editors are all highly respected international authorities on economic geography."@en ;
