By drawing on and developingMoreFor the past thirty five years geographers have systematically engaged with radical and critical theory to examine and expose uneven, unequal, exploitative and oppressive socio-spatial and environmental relations. By drawing on and developing different theoretical traditions – such as Marxism, feminism, and poststructuralism - they have shared an ideological commitment to challenge injustices and seek positive change. More recently, however, many have started to question the extent to which radical/critical geographers actually do make a difference beyond the academy- whether they really are changing the situation on the ground for everyday people in everyday places.

The works in this volume examine this contention and investigate how radical/critical geographies might proceed. Drawing on their own experiences of seeking to ground radical theory through critical praxis, the contributors vibrantly explore the role of the academic in society- the relevance and meaning of ‘making a difference’ beyond the academy- the relationship between academic praxis and activism- and the neo-liberal threat to enacting certain kinds of critical praxis.Radical Theory/Critical Praxis is an essential read for academics and students ideologically committed to challenging and transforming the status quo.

More generally, the book provides critical stimulation for anyone with an interest in the history of geographical thought, alongside those concerned with the relationships between academia and those apparently beyond the academy.
