Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed to give students an exceptional grounding in the discipline, Human Geography is a comprehensive and engaging introduction to the history, philosophy, and theories of human geography. Renowned for its lucid writing style, the text also integrates numerous pedagogical aids and a wealth of examples from around the world. The sixth edition features two new chapters on aspects of urban geography and new and updated content throughout. It also makes the material more easily accessible to students with the addition of 53 new figures, 26 new tables, 35 new boxes, and 45 new glossary items. The new edition is also packaged with a DVD--prepared by Brent Doberstein--containing nine documentaries that present interesting and relevant supplementary content.

Synopsis:

In response to the changing facts of human geography and to changing understandings of those facts, this edition is changed from the fifth edition in three substantive ways. First, there is much new content, most notably the addition of two more chapters on aspects of urban geography. Second, there is an increased emphasis on providing information for students in easily readable ways, especially though the addition of 53 new Figures, 26 new Tables, 35 new Boxes, and 45 new Glossary items. Third, much of the detailed factual content in this sixth edition is new.
