Rethinking the region by John Allen( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 1,877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regions are not simply bounded spaces on a map, this book argues. Using research of England during the 1980s to show how regions are made and unmade by social processes, it examines how lines of division, both social and geographical, were laid down as free-market growth
Space, place, and gender by Doreen B Massey( )

52 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new book brings together Doreen Massey's key writings on three areas central to a range of disciplines. In addition, the author reflects on the development of these ideas and outlines her current position on these important issues. The book is organized around the three themes of space, place and gender. It traces the development of ideas about the social nature of space and place and the relation of both to issues of gender and debates within feminism. It is debates in these areas which have been crucial in bringing geography to the centre of social sciences thinking in recent years, a

The anatomy of job loss : the how, why, and where of employment decline by Doreen B Massey( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Job loss is one of the most important issues in the capitalist world today: endless reports document the increasing scale of unemployment. This title, first published in 1982, adopted a new approach to the geography of job loss, to assess why redundancy happens and where. Massey and Meegan argue that an increase in dismissal does not necessarily mean that an industry is in decline; rather, it can be the result of a variety of issues, including production for profit and the relationship between industry and location. Throughout the book, discussions about theory and methodology are complemented
Geography matters! : a reader( Book )

26 editions published between 1984 and 2002 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Space and nature have long been the concerns of human geography, bound up with a strong sense of the importance of place. Understanding how society changes entails understanding the geography of social change. In this new reader, the editors argue for a new way of looking at the relationship between society and its spatial organization, between society and nature, and between the interdependence and unique character of places. First, through a selection of material ranging from the changing geography of class cultures, gender relations, city structures, state power to the processes of international law, the readings demonstrate that neither space nor society can be understood independently of the other. Social change involves spatial change and spatial change affects social organization. The two sides of the relation mediate a geography of change. Second, a number of the articles explore the relation between society and nature, and demonstrate that that, too involves a continuous and changing interrelationship. Nature cannot be understood outside of its social interpretation and use; equally nature, the environment, has an impact upon the quality and future of our lives. Third, this collection presents an approach to the geography of place which has methodological implications for all those in social science who are concerned with the central problem of appreciating the of outcomes without losing sight of general processes of chance. To grasp the dynamic relation between society, space and nature is important not only for human geography, but for all the social sciences. Geography Matters! brings together a wide range of articles, from both geographers and non-geographers. It addresses a series of economic, political and cultural issues from a geographical angle that will put the social distinctiveness of place back on the agenda for all the social sciences

City worlds by Doreen B Massey( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on our spatial imaginations, City Worlds prompts a distinctive understanding of cities. Exploring how different worlds within the city are brought into close proximity, this book demonstrates that cities in the world are essentially open, their very dynamism being a function of their interconnectedness. Analysing cities through this spatial understanding, City Worlds outlines new ways to address some of the ambiguities of cities: their promise and potential, their problems and threats."--Jacket

Geographical worlds by Doreen B Massey( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How we imagine the world to be, and how we represent it to others, lie at the heart of geography. Geographical Worlds sets out what it means to think geographically in a world that is changing in ways that bring to the fore questions of space, place and nature. In short it offers an introduction to the geographical imagination." "Starting with the variety of ways in which we represent the world to ourselves and others through maps, travel brochures, novels, television programmes and the like - the book draws attention to the disputed nature of geographical knowledge. It demonstrates how our understanding of the world, its shape, character and places within it, reflects the unequal balance of power in society. Within this context, the contributors go on to show how geographical thinking enables us to grasp the 'local' and the 'global' and the connections between the two. Central, here, is the fact that in this much-vaunted age of globalization, unevenness and inequality are built into the very way that such connections are drawn."--BOOK JACKET
