Product Description

Review

...this is a fine book. It has no equal for providing a comprehensive tour d'horizon of modern human geography.
Environment and Planning A (of the fourth edition)

...the catholic sensitivity of the book and its commitment...to commentary is even more welcome now than it was 12 years ago. 'Geography and Geographers' remains a remarkable achievement.
Progress in Human Geography (of the fourth edition

'Geography and Geographers' has become an accepted text since its publication in 1979, and its success has resulted in the production of this fifth edition...it retains all the detail of the previous four versions but includes a completely new chapter on the 'cultural turn'.

Johnston clearly and concisely evaluates the role of human geography since the war. Why do we study Geography in the form it is today? The role of the discipline is debated and details the principles of the subject, enabling the reader to comprehend such a fascinating field of research.
The role of contemporary geography is that of an important one, and Johnston analyses this meticulously. A definate purchase for any geography student!

Worst textbook ever! 24 Dec. 2010
By Loula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Higgeldy Piggeldy is the only way to describe this book that jumps about and fails to entertain a solid timeline or progression through geography or geographers. Don't do this to your students... Reading this was insufferable and ulimately left unfinished. I can't say I gained anything from it :(
