This review is from: Introducing Social Geographies (Paperback)
Introducing Social Geographies is a comprehensive book covering a range of topics integral to social geography. Aimed at the first/second year undergraduate, the structure of the book is one which is easy to follow, being split into (three) sections allowing easy digestion for any student who likes using his/her well invested books as beer mats. The book covers:
Introduction
Part 1 - Society, Material Life and Geography
- Work, class and social life
- The place of leisure
- Communities
Part 2 - Power Identity and Social Geography
- Race and ethnicity
- Geographies of Gender and Sexuality
- Age, generation and lifecourse
- Geographies of disability
Part 3 - Social Geography and Social Problems
- Society, nature and landscape
- Housing, space and society
- Crime, space and inequality
- Geographies of poverty
The book draws on the expertise of a range of Human Geography lectures interests, giving helpful and well illustrated case studies to back up the theories and concepts explained, emphasising the 'geographies' rather than 'geography'. An insightful and informative yet easy to follow text perfect for students being studying Social Geography(/ies), including topic overviews, summaries of key points, critiques and suggestions for further reading.

This review is from: Introducing Social Geographies (Paperback)
This book offers a useful starting point in social geography, covering many engaging and interesting topics. It uses understandable language, but never dumbs anything down.

An excellent read for those starting off in geography.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introducing Social Geographies (Paperback)
I purchased this book when I was looking for a position in the housing sector.

So pleased that I did.

It opened my eyes to a lot of things that I didnt realise and took for granted. Written by people who lecture in the North East, makes the book even more interesting for me, as I am also from the NE.

Even if you are not looking for a role in housing, I would recommend this book as it is so interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing Social Geographies, 14 Dec 2006
This review is from: Introducing Social Geographies (Paperback)
A timeless classic! Easily the best social geography text around written in an engaging and accessible style with some great case study material. far better than Valentine's inferior text which goes by a similar title. A must for all undergraduate human geography students.
