Traditionally his interests have been in the historical geographies of 'madness' and mental health and mental health care provision. Later, he dabbled in the emerging, and increasingly significant, sub-discipline of animal geographies. A devotee of the work of Michel Foucault, his research extended and localised Foucault's history of madness to England and Wales. Over a decade in the writing his major work was published by a minor press in Wales as A Geographical History of Institutional Provision for the Insane from Medieval Times to the 1860s in England and Wales: The Space Reserved for Insanity. Always a generous collaborator, he has co-edited numerous general anthologies of human geography. Most recently, he has examined, with , cafe culture in Glasgow.
