The RGS-IBG book series turns 20 this year, and to date it has published 57 titles spanning the full range of geographical research topics.
Dr Ruth Craggs (King's College London), took over as Editor for the series at the beginning of this year, and is supported by an Editorial Advisory Board. Dr Craggs said, “I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to further develop the reputation of the series as an exciting place to publish, producing theoretically engaging and empirically rich titles representing the very best geographical scholarship. I hope to continue to diversify the range of titles, formats, authors, reviewers and audiences over the coming years.”
Dr Craggs follows on as Editor from Dr David Featherstone (University of Glasgow), who used his five years in post to develop the quality and scope of the series to better reflect the wide ranging interests, people and locations that are represented in the discipline of geography. We thank Dr Featherstone for his intellectual leadership and able stewardship of the series.
Recent titles in the book series include: Geographies of Anticolonialism by Dr Andy Davies, Geopolitics and the Event by Dr Alan Ingram, and On Shifting Foundations by Dr Kean Fan Lim. The next addition to the book series Home SOS: Gender, Violence and Survival in Crisis Ordinary Cambodia by Professor Katherine Brickell will be published in June and is available to pre-order now.
