Post-structuralist geography; a guide to relational space.


Post-structuralist geography; a guide to relational space.

Murdoch, Jonathan.

Sage Publications


220 pages




Murdoch (School of City and Regional Planning, Cardiff, Wales) looks at theories and cases to sample ways that post-structural thought has influenced human geography. He concentrates on a small number of key thinkers, and examines how they might help geographers re-conceptualize the spatial realm in ecological and relational terms. Focusing on the relationship between spatial processes and social processes, he argues, highlights the contribution that post-structuralism and geography can make to each other.
