The RGS-IBG Book Series Editorial Board welcomes four new members with physical/environmental geography expertise.
The Society is pleased to announce that Dr David Featherstone, University of Glasgow, became sole Editor of the RGS-IBG Book Series on 1 January 2017. The Society would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Tim Allott, University of Manchester, who has stepped down as co-Editor of the Series.
Recognising that physical and environmental geography remains a vital part of the Series, the Society welcomes Professors Anna Davies, Trinity College Dublin; Sandy Harrison, University of Reading; Stephen Rice, University of Loughborough; and Dr Kevon Rhiney, Rutgers University, to an expanded Editorial Board from 1 January 2017.
The RGS-IBG Book Series publishes work of the highest international standing across the discipline. It seeks to promote scholarly publications that leave an intellectual mark and change the way readers think about particular issues, methods or theories. Latest titles (featured in the image above) include Pathological Lives: Diseases, Space and Biopolitics by Stephen Hinchliffe, Nick Bingham, John Allen and Simon Carter; and Smoking Geographies: Space, Place and Tobacco by Ross Barnett, Graham Moon, Jamie Pearce, Lee Thompson and Liz Twigg. Forthcoming titles include Home SOS: Gender, Violence and Law in Cambodia by Katherine Brickell; On Shifting Foundations: State Rescaling, Policy Experimentation And Economic Restructuring In Post-1949 China by Kean Fan Lim and Cryptic Concrete: A Subterranean Journey Into Cold War Germany by Ian Klinke.
