"This is an instant classic, a landmark that scholars and graduate students will return to for decades to come. Physically and bibliographically, this presentation is state of the art. A "must" addition to all social science collections worldwide." P.O. Muller, University of Miami
"The Companion, then, is intended to provide a state of the art review of the ideas, concepts, and theories that are current in economic geography... This is a uniformly high quality collection that I wholeheartedly recommend to interested undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers alike, whether they term themselves 'economic geographers' or not. The chapters work well as stand alone resources, and equally, the structure of the book into five separate but interlinked 'realms' provides a good overall coherence." Environment and Planning A.
"The Companion adopts a rather conventional organization of subsequent chapters that will fit with many course syllabi, moving from "Realms of Production" through "Resource Worlds" and "Social Worlds" to "Spaces of Circulation"." Peter O. Muller, Annals of the Association of American Geographers
"This is an impressive and very welcome volume. The editors and authors have done a great job and the rest of us should be grateful for the fact that this rich collection of papers is accessible" Environment and Planning D.
"...manages to combine a strong sense of the intellectual diversity of contemporary economic geography...with an awareness of the key questions which define the scope of the discipline." Keith Chapman, Univesity of Aberdeen
