Book News Annotation:
One in a series of five volumes (soil being of course the most fundamental of them all) that together comprise a complete introductory text to physical geography. The series is designed to accommodate the new modular college courses that mean courses in physical geography as a whole are vanishing. Gerrard (geography, U. of Birmingham) has striven to keep the volume self-contained, but does include a few references to other volumes in the series, which cover climatology, geomorphology, biogeography, and hydrology.
