This is the first English translation of a book which has been widely recognized in Europe as a major contribution to the interface between geography and social theory. Ambitious, crackling with original ideas and persuasively argued, it raises exciting new implications for the study of space and social theory.


'… constructed from in-depth and scholarly discussions of eminent sources: Popper, Schutz, Pareto, Weber …' - Environment and Planning

'… argues persuasively that the central object of social geography is action and not space.' - Environment and Planning

'The author, evidently, has a huge axe to grind.' - Times Higher Educational Supplement
