Postmodern Geography: Theory and Praxis focuses upon one of the key themes which have served to shape disciplinary debates in geography over the past decade: the role of postmodernity and postmodern interpretations in reconfiguring our ways of framing social enquiry and our readings of space. This edited collection presents numerous perspectives on the implications of the postmodern turn for the praxis of geography. The contributors engage in debate about the epistemological bases of possible new geographical praxes - "other" possible ways of "doing geography" - while also querying the implications of postmodern approaches for geography and geographers' political role. Contributors to the Volume: Denis Cosgrove, Michael Dear, Giuseppe Dematteis, Franco Farinelli, Steven Flusty, Vincenzo Guarrasi, Cindi Katz, Luciana L. Martins, Claudio Minca, Don Mitchell, Gunnar Olsson, Neil Smith and Edward Soja.
