Product description


′The second edition of The Student′s Companion to Geography provides a comprehensive guide to the discipline throughout the English–speaking world. The authorship contains a welcome mix of old and young, and the style is refreshing throughout. The content is, of course, extremely wide ranging and will prove very helpful to anyone wishing to get started on some aspect of the subject. The coverage underlines the rich variety within the subject and proves without doubt that geography does matter!′ Professor Tim Burt, University of Durham <!––end––>

′The Companion is a resource that will be of great value to geography students throughout their undergraduate careers in higher education. [It will] encourage readers to think about their discipline, to which this volume provides an excellent gateway.′ Emeritus Professor Gregory, University of London

Update from its first edition to include online resources and discussion of new trends in the field, this is a solid resource, with each essay well written and concise, that will prove valuable for geography students throughout their academic studies. C.A.Groves, Ball State University

From the Back Cover

The Student′s Companion to Geography is an essential resource for those studying geography at university, as well as for those thinking of applying in the future. Contributions from leading geographers from around the world provide a whole range of information about what today′s geography is all about, how to study it and how to find out more. Changes for the revised second edition include: The section on what geographers are doing has been completely revised and includes new entries on geocomputation, gender, environmental knowledge, geoarchaeology and globalization. More material has been added on effective learning, from good essay writing and efficient note taking in lectures, to tips for successful presentations. An important new chapter on ethics in geographical research has been added. A major new section on geography′s relation to science and society has also been introduced. The geographical directory now focuses on online resources. Practical tips on writing a good CV and information on international study are given.
