The Legal Geographies Reader free pdf This timely Reader brings together, for the first time, key writings on the relationship between law and geography. In so doing, it has fostered the creation of an intellectual forum for scholars and students in related disciplines, who have - until now - been working in parallel, rather than in tandem. Although a recent area of study, the intersection between these fields is becoming increasingly important with the recognition that space is socially produced and that it is riddled with power relations.The chapters in this Reader are organized around geographic scale - local, national, global - and each section includes an introductory essay contextualizing the selections and explaining their contribution. The topics covered include public space, local racisms, property and the city, environmental regulation, state formation and decentralization and international-global legalities. A comprehensive introduction reviews the current state of the field.Representing some of the most provocative and interesting approaches to law and geography by an interdisciplinary group of acclaimed contributors, Legal Geographies Reader will serve as an important reference source to this expanding field.
