Economic Geography: An Institutional Approach 2e is a comprehensive introduction to the study of economic activity in place and across space. Perfect for all second- and third-year courses in economic geography, the text provides both a solid foundation in the location dynamics of value chains and a perspective that recognizes the interdependence of places, institutions, activities, and ways of life around the world. Instead of taking the traditional approach, which surveys this history of economic geography as a whole, the authors trace the historical developments of individual sectors, focusing on the way economic, social, and political institutions interact to determine the quality of life in a particular location.
