Reviews

Feminist geography at its best . . . engaging, insightful, theoretically sound while grounded in the realities of women's lives.--Joni Seager, University of Vermont This collection of essays confirms the importance of feminist approaches to geography and the importance of geography to feminist critiques of social life. It will be a stimulating and useful text for readers both new to and familiar with feminist geography.--Gillian Rose, University of Edinburgh No matter where you place yourself in the discipline feminist, nonfeminist, or antifeminist, you have to look at this colection. It is a landmark volume in the history of geographic thought and incredibly useful in understanding the positionings of women in the economy. . . . I am impressed with the freshness of the collection. Each chapter in its own way shows how theory is grounded in women's everyday lives.--Pamela Moss, University of Victoria Economic Geography An exciting, often provocative, and sometimes paradoxical collection that showcases directions in feminist geographic research. . . . A superb resource for scholars and students interested in contemporary directions in feminist geography.--Vera Chouinard, McMaster University Annals of the Association of American Geographers The essays in Thresholds in Feminist Geography are uniformly polished, and for an edited collection it is unusually even in terms of presentational quality, showcasing ccurrent research in feminist geography to good effect.--Liz Bondi, University of Edinburgh Signs: Journal of Women In Culture & Society


This collection of essays confirms the importance of feminist approaches to geography and the importance of geography to feminist critiques of social life. It will be a stimulating and useful text for readers both new to and familiar with feminist geography.--Rose, Gillian
