Review

Of a Previous Edition:

"An invaluable student guide." Endeavour

"As a student′s companion it could hardly be bettered." Times Educational Supplement

"The Dictionary remains the best single–volume reference to the field of human geography. In paper, it is quite a bargain and clearly a necessary addition to the bookshelves of students and professionals alike." Geography

"This is easily the best dictionary of human geography in print." Progress in Human Geography

"This dictionary is an essential companion for anyone studying human geography and it is a bargain. Buy it immediately!" Reference Reviews

From the Back Cover

This path–breaking guide to the concepts, terms and theories used in human geography has now been fully revised to reflect and to advance changes in the nature and practice of human geography. The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition, contains a wealth of new material, to ensure that it remains the definitive resource for a new generation of students and teachers. As human geography plays an increasingly important role in interdisciplinary inquiry, so The Dictionary of Human Geography draws upon and contributes to a rich and diverse series of debates, making the dictionary an indispensable guide to contemporary travels in interdisciplinary space.

The successful format of previous editions remains unchanged: the Dictionary includes short definitional entries and longer, interpretative essays on human geography and its major sub–fields, thereby providing readers with a contextual background to the terms. By directing readers to the major sources for further information, the Dictionary also serves as an unparalleled companion to geographical literature.

The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition makes a significant contribution to the discipline′s literature and will be an essential aid for undergraduate and graduate students, professional geographers and other scholars in the humanities and social sciences, and geography teachers

Format: Paperback
As a student of Human geography, I often require a clear and concise definition of terms for my research and essay writing. This book never fails to provide me with such, giving a clear definition, context and background to every term and issue a human geographer could think of...and plenty more that he/she couldn't!
The book is more than just a dictionary, it is a collection of articles and related material that offers a wide range of viewpoints and extra reading at every opportunity. Very well put together, very well researched, well worth your while.

Big book. Heavy book. Long definitions, and restricted to geography in the loosest sense of the word. It wanders from economics to philosophy, and offers much more than definitions. You can easily get lost in this book.

I study geography at Bristol (1st year) and found it very useful for revision and for understanding the lectures.
was perfect for essays as it was the best place to start looking for references.

Excellent for all budding geography geeks out there. Useful for degree level essays, although a more up to date version might be better now.
