Publisher reviews

"A kaleidoscopic presentation of the riches of feminist geography, revealing at every turn the breadth of its theoretical perspectives, the variety of its objects of inquiry, and the reach of its methodologies. At once poetic, polemical and rigorous, the Companion to Feminist Geography cross--cuts contemporary feminist research at all scales with historiographies of feminist thought in the field. With chapters by a truly international group of authors, this anthology inscribes feminist geography at the heart of the discipline as it makes the vitality of geographic thought vivid not only for other fields but for a range of political movements as well." Cindi Katz, Graduate Centre, City University of New York "Though each of the essays can be read for its own distinctive contribution, the anthology as a whole is designed to provide a mosaic of feminist geography for both scholars and students." Reference and Research Book News, Vol 20/1, Feb 2005 "An extensive resource written by influential feminist thinkers and practitioners...All Blackwell Companions are relevant to academics, researchers and students in their disciplines and beyond, but this volume on feminist geography will have more general appeal" Reference Reviews
