  1. Well done, but as I pointed out on crit-geog-forum, and while the book’s content is no doubt excellent, nobody should be having to buy a book about radical geography from a commercial publisher these days, even if its price is relatively reasonable. That makes an un-radical product in my view. Gary Hall from Coventry Uni [and founder of OHP] has exposed the broader incongruity of such editorial across the social sciences. He says “we need to engage, critically and creatively, with the very concept of the liberal, humanist authorial subject that underpins our mode of being and working as academics and theorists. And what’s more, we need to do so by actually performing this concept differently in how we think and act.” OHP is a start with its freely available content. https://blogs.kent.ac.uk/osc/2018/10/22/innovation-in-scholarly-communication-liquid-books/
