Abstract

Do geographers have anything of depth and profundity to say about the key questions of our time? Thirty years ago David Harvey, exasperated by what he saw as an ineffectual discipline lacking scholarly ambition and moral purpose, famously urged geographers to ``say something sensible and coherent [about the world] or else forever ... remain silent'' (1973, page 129). As he well knew, silence was not an option. The intervening decades turned out to be some of the most dramatic and troubling in human history.
