Book Description

18 April 2003 076197492X 978-0761974925 First Edition
Key Methods in Geography is an introduction for undergraduates to the principal methodological issues involved in the collection, analysis and presentation of geographical information. It provides an accessible primer, which will be used by students as a reference throughout their degree, on all issues from research design to presentation. A unique feature of the book is that it provides definitions of terms from both human geography and physical geography.

Organized into four parts: Getting Started in Geographical Research; Data Collection in Human Geography; Data Collection in Physical Geography; Analysing and Representing Geographical Data - each chapter comprises:

- a short definition

- a summary of the principal arguments

- a substantive 5,000-word discussion

- use of real-life examples

- annotated notes for further reading.

The teaching of research methods is integral in all geography courses. Aligned with the Geography Benchmark Statement Key Methods in Geography identifies the key analytical and observational strategies with which all UK geography undergraduates should be conversant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dry but essential 29 April 2009
This book is essential for those doing research in geography in their first degree. It's dry and a bit boring but essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another above-par undegrad intro to methods for geographers in training 12 Jun 2006
By James Safranek - Published on Amazon.com
This book, along with its counter part, KEY CONCEPTS IN GEOGRAPHY, would be my first choice for undergrad geography majors, whether emphasizing cultural, physical or both. As I said in another review, the Brits seem to have it together when creating digestable material for their students of geography. Highly recommended as supplements to the standard physical and cultural geography textbooks used in the U.S.
