Overview

This collection explores the origins, development, and applications of the most fundamental and enduring concepts in human geography. Providing the most comprehensive examination of the field to date, nine essays on substantive concepts, such as nature, culture, space, time, region, and ecology, are flanked by seven essays on methodological concepts ranging from maps and models to feminism and postmodernism. More universal in scope, more conceptual in content, and more accessible in exposition than books on themes and contemporary debates in geography, Concepts in Human Geography makes an excellent text in advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in geographic methods, history, and philosophy.

Editorial Reviews

Pamela Shurmersmith
Provides sufficient material to provoke informed discussion and prompt further inquiry . . .
John Agnew
Human geography has long needed a survey of conceptual issues suitable for student use. This is it. Sixteen essays offer insightful, sometimes brilliant, introductions to conceptual controversies and differences that both divide and unite the field.
Peter J. Hugill
A stimulating and accessible set of essays.
Christopher L. Salter
The discipline is well-served by such a creative and thoughtful series in perspective on substance and method in human geography.
John Paul Jones
These carefully chosen essays help explain the contemporary vitality and diversity of geographic thought.
CHOICE
A useful contribution to the literature, particularly because it is one of the more accessible approaches to many of geography's ongoing intellectual debates. It is cleanly produced, well referenced via chapter-end bibliographies, and nicely indexed.
