Resumen

Today's rapidly flowing global economy means the geographical economic perspective has never been more important. "An Introduction to Economic Geography" comprehensively guides students through the core issues and debates of this vibrant and exciting area, whilst simultaneously exploring the range of approaches and paradigms currently invigorating the wider discipline. Rigorous in approach, yet accessible in style, the authors demystify and enliven a crucial subject for study in the 21st century. Underpinned by the themes of globalisation, uneven development and place, the text conveys the diversity and vitality of contemporary economic geography. It balances coverage of "traditional" areas such as regional development and labour markets with insight into new and evolving topics like neoliberalism, consumption, information and communications technologies and tourist geographies. The main features include: a global and balanced view is afforded through research, case studies and examples drawn from a diverse range of countries, a chapter on the "global South" and coverage throughout of both developed and developing countries; a political economy approach is supported by cultural and institutional insights that offer students a variety of perspectives on each topic and a culturally sensitive overview; in- textfeatures, including chapter maps, reflective questions andexercises, encourage the reader to engage with the material, test knowledge and understanding, and reflect. Dedicated boxes provide a range of lively and topical case studies and examples to illustrate wider points; and, a wide range of maps, tables and photographs illustrate and help clarify the key concepts and examples. "An Introduction to Economic Geography" is an essential textbook for undergraduate students taking courses in Economic Geography, Globalisation Studies and more broadly in Human Geography. It will also be of key interest to those in Planning, Business and Management Studies and Economics
