Plugging away

Two titles in a book series I edit - Key Concepts in Human Geography - have been recently published so I thought I'd give them a plug.

Key Concepts in Political Geography by Carolyn Gallaher, Carl Dahlman, Mary Gilmartin, Alison Mountz with Peter Shirlow. Here for more details.

Key Concepts in Urban Geography by Alan Latham, Derek McCormack, Kim McNamara and Donald McNeil. Here for more details.

Both books provide a great introduction to the most important conceptual ideas currently used to think through and explain geopolitics and cities.

Thanks, Rob - As an educator, I always like to know the books that are out there, and I admire a series that can tie in timely concepts such as urban decay and political power struggles with geography in a way that helps students understand why geography matters.
