<p>'How do you change the intellectual landscape of an entire discipline? This book answers the question, tracing the many shoots, leaves and branches of radical geography from the late 1960s onwards. It should inspire a new generation of faculty and students to believe that the smallest beginnings can, in time, build to transformative movements.'<br /><b>Noel Castree, Professor of Geography, University of Manchester, UK and Honorary Professorial Research Fellow, University of Wollongong, Australia</b> </p> <p>'This is an enormous gift to the discipline – a richly detailed history of radical geography. Instead of being relegated to a mere chapter in geography history texts, we can finally get a sense of how radical geography developed across different places, how it challenged mainstream geography and the difficulties it faced. Most importantly, however, it helps us understand the present.'<br /><b>Laura Pulido, Professor and Department Head of Ethnic Studies, University of Oregon, USA</b></p>

<p><i>Spatial Histories of Radical Geography</i> offers a systematic and comprehensive approach to the history of radical geography in North America, and its relationship with the rest of the world. With contributions from an international group of scholars, the book takes a geographical approach to the emergence and development of radical geography, focussing on the roles of place, spatial circulation and geographical scale.<br /><br />This collection reviews North American radical geography from its early beginnings in the 1950s to the 1980s after which it became an established approach within Anglophone human geography. Drawing on both oral histories by early radical geographers and private and public archives, the volume contains a wealth of never-before published historical material.<br /><br />With a dual emphasis on radical geography’s theoretical innovations and grounded political practice, <i>Spatial Histories of Radical Geography</i> serves as both a wide-ranging introduction and indispensable professional reference.</p>
