Enterprising Worlds: A Geographic Perspective on Economics, Environments & Ethics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enterprising World represents the culmination of several years of work by geographers, planners, and economists. The chapters included in this volume represent the collective efforts of the International Geographical Union's Commission on the Dynamics of Economic Spaces. This collection is the result of the 2005 annual meeting in Toledo, Ohio (USA). The chapters have been selected based on their contribution to the broader community of economic geographers and policymakers and to demonstrate the inherent interconnectedness of these themes (and at times the conceptual tension that exists between ethics, economics, and the environment) insofar as these important issues shape the contours and cleavages of contemporary regional development.In particular, the chapters represent the diversity of perspectives on these issues. The authors provide insight into the workings of a variety of communities, regions, and nations as they seek to balance economic growth with the growing necessity to simultaneously promote ethical and sustainable regional development. As such, this book is truly international in both scale and scope and provides the reader with a survey of emerging and established concepts, theories, and conflicts in economic geography.
