Given the emphasis on contested worlds and contested geographies it is, I feel, inappropriate to end this book with an attempt to reconcile the approaches, argument and content of its constituent chapters. Instead I wish to end by highlighting how this book, despite its length, is, I feel, very much just an introduction to contemporary human geography, its contests and some of the contested worlds it addresses. As Cloke et al (1999) comment in the postscript to their Introducing human geography, ‘all introductions to Human Geography are partial’.
