“Overall, Boyle provides a concise and strongly organized book for the introductory university student. His many years of teaching and learning the subject are demonstrated in this book being accessible, engaging, and insightful. While it emphasizes the Western perspective (Boyle argues his rationale on p. xxiii), any teacher needing just such a concise foundational text would do well to consider this one.” (The Canadian Geographer, Le Géographe canadien, 1 October 2015)
An excellent textbook for introductory courses in Human Geography. The thematic and historical organization is a most welcome change from the usual subdisciplinary frameworks.
