Andy has another new publication out today, a book chapter in the second, and expanded, edition of Key thinkers on space and place. It now runs to 528 pages! This is an encyclopaedia style book organised by author – 65 key thinkers on space and place. Unique in its concept, the book is a comprehensive guide to the life and work of some of the key thinkers particularly influential in the current ‘spatial turn’ in the social sciences. Each chapter provides a synoptic overview of different ideas about the role of space and place in contemporary social, cultural, political and economic life, each portrait comprises: biographical information and theoretical context, an explication of their contribution to spatial thinking, an overview of key advances and controversies, guidance to further reading. Andy’s chapter was also in the first edition, although it has been revised for the second edition, and it is about the contribution of Andrew Sayer.
