Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A generation of geography students on both sides of the Atlantic were raised on Peter Haggett's classic text, Geography: A Modern Synthesis. First published in 1972, it went through three revisions and was translated into six languages. This new version, re-titled for a new century, Geography: A Global Synthesis retains many of the features which gave the original volume such worldwide appeal. It presents geography as an integrated and integrating discipline, seeing both environmental and human geography and systematic and regional geography as intrinsically linked. It argues the facts of geographic distributions, the techniques by which geographers study the world, and the philosophy which informs their analyses all a part of a global synthesis. This synthesis operates at a range of spatial scales from the local up to the planetary system itself. It ranges in time back to human origins and onward to human futures. The book sees geography as an essential discipline for students wishing to understand their changing world at the start of a new millennium.

Key features:

* thoroughly revised, restructured, and rewritten to reflect changes in world geography, it is illustrated with over 500 figures and stunning new plates

* retains a distinctive five-fold structure spanning the major geographic fields with one additional section (The Geographers Toolbox) and includes several new chapters e.g. Globalization; Geography of World Health; Geographical Information Systems (GIS). New sections are also provided on themes such as Global Warming, Gender Geography, and Job Opportunities for Geographers

* although aimed at students with little previous geographic training, it also provides onward links to more advanced courses for those wishing to pursue the subject further.

* each of the book's 24 chapters is accompanied by three boxes. These are concerned with: introducing new methods (e.g. GIS software packages); illustrating the contributions of a particular geographer (e.g. Peter Gould and the geography of Aids); providing a regional case study (e.g. Lake Baikal); describing a historical phase in the development of geography (e.g. The Berkeley School)

* new appendices provide: a glossary of key geographical terms; sites on the world wide web of interest to geographers.

Peter Haggett is Professor Emeritus of Geography in the University of Bristol and a member of the Institute of Advanced Studies. A Cambridge graduate, he taught geography at three U.K universities (London, Cambridge and Bristol) and at more than a dozen universities in North America and Australasia. He has acted as advisor to African and Asian universities, and served as visiting scientist at the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Over the last forty years, he has authored and co-authored a score of volumes and atlases and established three new geographical journals. His research has been recognized in the first award by France of its Vautrin Lud Prize (geography's Nobel-like award); by gold medals from the American Geographical Society, the Royal Geographical Society and the Swedish Geographical Society; and by honorary degrees from universities on both sides of the Atlantic. With Seden's Torsten Hagerstrand, he was one of the two founding members of the European Academy and also served as Vice President of the British Academy.

Synopsis:

The main reason people don't accomplish more at work and at home is that they don't focus on what matters: the quality of their relationships. In this book, an international business consultant discusses four beliefs that keep people from building productive and satisfying relationships: seeing oneself as separate and autonomous, feeling connected only through power and control, having an either/or, right/wrong mentality, and perceiving the world as fixed and predetermined. True Partnership offers a proven and effective method for improving relationships by reassessing these limiting beliefs.

Synopsis:

Contains answers to the workbook exercises.
