Product Description

From the Back Cover

An introduction to human geography provides a comprehensive overview of the major topics within human geography, including settlements, population, resources, the economy, consumption, citizenship, culture, society, the politics of place and globalisation. Coherent and substantial chapters ensure balanced treatment across the field of human geography.

Focussing on some of the key geographical challenges facing the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century, this stimulating text examines the forces that shape economies and societies on what the Editors describe as our, ‘...interconnected, contradictory, complex, conflict-ridden and fantastically diverse planet.’

All chapters are written by specialists in the field and offer original, critical and engaging perspectives.

Bought as part of pre reading for undergrad geography degree, and offers a good grounding in the evolution of geography as a discipline, and where it is headed in the 21st century.

This is a very good book for undergraduate level, very comprehesive covering a wide range of issues concerning human geography. For a full view on the aspects of human geography I recommend it to be used alongside "Geographies of Development" (Potter et al 2003 or 2008) at least. The price is very good too if you buy it from the 'used' section.
