520    "Subject Areas/Keywords: geographic theory, geographic 
       thought, human geography, social sciences, social theory, 
       spatial-quantitative revolution This book cogently 
       examines how human geography has developed from a field 
       with limited self-awareness regarding method and theory to
       the vibrant study of society and space that it is today. 
       Kevin R. Cox provides an interpretive, critical 
       perspective on Anglo-American geographic thought in the 
       20th and 21st centuries. He probes the impact of the 
       spatial-quantitative revolution and geography's engagement
       with other social sciences, particularly in social theory.
       Key concepts and theories in the field are explained and 
       illustrated with instructive research examples. Cox 
       explores both how new approaches to human geography get 
       constructed and what each school of thought has 
       contributed to understanding the world in which we live"--
