Published: 2013-01-22 | ISBN: 1444338315, 1444338307 | PDF | 326 pages | 3 MB

 

Doreen Massey has transformed contemporary understandings of space, place and politics. This book critically interrogates her ground-breaking contributions to geography and to political debate. Former graduate students, colleagues, geographers and other social scientists, join together with artists, political figures and activists to engage with her ideas. These specially commissioned essays take their inspiration from her style of rigorous theorizing animated by political engagement.
Doreen Massey’s geography has always been informed by her involvement with the international women’s movement, socialist experiments in Venezuela and Nicaragua and the Greater London Council of the 1980s, then at the height of its rearguard action against Thatcherite neoliberalism. This landmark text offers a comprehensive overview of her work to date, a series of political and scholarly reflections upon it, and a set of directions for the further development of her ideas. Through serious reflection on Doreen Massey’s contributions the book provides intellectual tools and resources for re-shaping our geographical and political futures.
