'The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Political Geography is a must-have for students and scholars working in this area. This volume shows how long-standing concepts are undergoing rapid change, such as the broadening of agency to include children and the non-human, even as it directs our attention to central concerns that have remained pillars of political geography since its beginning, such as borders and resources. Rarely are so many leading voices gathered in a single volume, and to such effect. This should be the first port of call for any student trying to grasp the whole of the field.' Jason Dittmer, University College London 'The Companion to Political Geography is just that, an indispensable volume or companion for any political geographer, whatever the stage of their career; a political geographer's "best friend" in the process of learning and doing political geography. It blends historical scope, conceptual depth, theoretical insight, and an impressive empirical range. The Companion balances a reflection upon what has been done, with a call to what needs to be done, while serving as a theoretical and methodological guidebook for how to approach new research. It allows a reader to interpret political geography that has come before and offers meaningful signposts to what may come next. In the process it gives political geographers the ability to reflect on who they are, what they do, and for whom.' Colin Flint, Utah State University 'These essays compellingly illustrate how exciting the field has become as they map agendas in political geography. . .' James D. Sidaway, National University of Singapore The first Companion to Political Geography was a landmark statement about the nature of the subdiscipline that also set the research agenda for political geography. Nearly 10 years on, this all-new collection accounts for the intellectual and worldly changes that have taken place in and around political geography, providing a fresh overview of current issues and global research. The Companion brings together the best researchers and communicators in the field, who highlight provocative theoretical and conceptual debates, and present a compendium of key material and intellectual developments. These include the long-term impact of the al-Qaeda attacks on the US in 2001, the rise of China as a geo-economic superpower, new media, the Anthropocene, and concerns about the geo-politics of nature and resources. Intellectually, the influence of the practice-based methods in geography and concepts including postcolonialism, feminist geographies, and popular cultures are underlined. This new collection offers a one-stop reference volume for students and for those in allied fields requiring an overview of the substantive debates.
