Wainwright on Bowman Expeditions

Geopiracy” by Joel Wainwright.

Joel Wainwright’s new book has just been published as part of the Palgrave Pivot series. Targeted at texts that are somewhere between an article and a monograph (20-25,000 words) they are published with a pretty quick turnaround time (Wainwright mentions in the text that it was completed in October 2012). I just got this on Wednesday and I’ve almost finished it.

I hope to review it shortly: but for now I’d say that Wainwright has laid down an important challenge to geography and geographers–a glove to the face if you like– that will require our most thoughtful and engaged response.
