Product Description


“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.
Professor Patricia Wood, York University, Toronto

In this textbook, Mark Boyle combines his broad and deep understanding of the discipline of Human Geography with his great passion and enthusiasm for education and teaching. With the undergraduate student in mind, he has delivered a concise yet complete overview of what Human Geography is all about. Students who want to grasp the contemporary global political turmoil have to read this introduction to Human Geography.
Professor Guy Baeten, Lund University
