LOGICS OF DISLOCATION is the first volume to systematically apply a postmodern sensibility to economic geography. In clear, jargon-free prose, author Trevor J. Barnes integrates a comprehensive review of economic geography's recent past with innovative work in economics, philosophy, and the sociology of science, clarifying key poststructuralist ideas and demonstrating their relevance to the field. In its critique of the rationalism and essentialism that characterizes prevailing models in the field, and its exploration of alternative conceptualizations, this book offers both a novel reconstruction of economic geography's past and a basis for a reconceived future.
