Geographical Review Fieldwork Issue Reprinted
Doing Fieldwork, the special double issue of the Geographical Review (Vol. 91, Nos. 1 & 2), is being reprinted.
The original printing of the issue was unusually large. Despite that, greater-than-anticipated sales of the issue have almost depleted the original printing. That has made it necessary to print an extra run to meet continuing demand. The fresh supply is expected in AGS offices in late March.
Instructors ordering classroom quantities are apparently using the volume as a supplementary text, especially for classes in fieldwork methods.
Doing Fieldwork, co-edited by GR Editor Paul Starrs and guest editor Dydia DeLyser, contains 56 essays by geographers about their fieldwork experiences and their views of the role of fieldwork in the life of the geographer. One reviewer has described these as “mini case studies” of the issues bound up in the fieldwork experience. A four-and-a-half page introduction by the editors asserts the indispensability of fieldwork for the true geographical scholar and celebrates the remarkable variety of paths fieldwork research can take.
The 508-page volume sells for $39.00 plus shipping and handling. There are discounts for bulk purchases. For ordering information, contact James W. Thomas at (212) 422-5456 or at JWThomas@amergeog.org.
