Review

"This book will be of inestimable value to researchers now growing up and generations to come. It is also valuable to those already well steeped in the field. There are papers here that I have been wanting to reread (or in some cases, read) for years and had despaired of ever being able to find again."--Maghi King, Professor of Machine Translation, University of Geneva School of Translation and Interpretation

"Dealing with global climate change will pose major issues for the international community and will require unprecedented international cooperation. These issues and efforts to obtain cooperation are certain to be salient in debates about international public policy for many years to come. This debate will be more sophisticated and more likely to yield good results if illuminated by the advances that have been made in international relations theory, and international relations theory will be enriched by being engaged in the debate. This book makes vital contributions to both objectives." --Harold K. Jacobson, Jesse Siddal Reeves Professor of Political Science, Senior Research Scientist, and Adjunct Professor of Law, University of Michigan

"This impressive book covers the myriad ways in which spatial representations are used by humans and other animals to support various cognitive activities. It is timely and thought provoking, and lays the basis for understanding how and why space is so important to the mind."--Lynn Nadel, Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science, University of Arizona

"This well-edited book contains uniformly excellent chapters by just the right set of authors, all circling a common problem. Spatial representation is not just important in itself, but intimately tied to our underrstanding of time and number, to transitive reasoning, to use of analogy and culturally-mediated symbol systems. Readers will find this wonderful book gets them excited about the future of interdisciplinary cognitive research."--Nora Newcombe, Professor of Psychology, Temple University

"An outstanding collection -- broad, up to date, and thought-provoking. A must-read for anyone interested in spatial cognition."--Lynn Nadel, Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science, University of Arizona
