Product Description

From the Back Cover

Methods in Human Geography: A Guide for Students Doing a Research Project provides an essential guide to current research approaches in human geography. It covers all aspects of undertaking a geography research project, from the selection of an appropriate topic through to the organisation and writing of the final report.

Many students find it difficult to select and use appropriate techniques when preparing research projects as part of their geography degree programme. Methods in Human Geography has been written by a team of active researchers, each expert in their particular methodological approaches and experienced dissertation supervisors. The second edition of this popular text includes updated commentary and entirely new chapters reflecting the changing nature of human geography research.

Main features

  • Focuses on human geography research.
  • Integrates a wide range of quantitative and qualitative approaches within a single volume from interviews, focus groups and analysis of text to quantitative analysis and geographical information systems.
  • Covers the whole process of undertaking a research project, through selection of an appropriate topic, finding previous work, choosing appropriate methodologies, doing the research to writing up the report.
  • The book strikes a balance between authoritative discussion of key issues and practical advice for the new researcher.

Robin Flowerdew is Professor of Human Geography at the University of St Andrews; David Martin is Professor of Geography at the University of Southampton. Both have extensive teaching and research experience in methods in human geography.

Found this very useful for doing dissertation as a human geography student. Also good for general research and presenting qualitative and quantitative data. Really good book.

To be "fair": I believe they listed the condition as "fair" and I would say it was "fair"ly thrashed. This is not to say it wasn't readable (it very much was - all was totally fine and the book served its purpose); however I the binding had definitely been put through a lawnmower before being sent...
