Overview

Human geography focuses on the ways that humans interact with each other and with the environment, illuminating the complex processes and nature of our global society. This book presents the full range of this remarkable field, presenting nearly 300 pertinent models, concepts, theories, and people associated with human geography. It is the first encyclopedia devoted exclusively to human geography and will be an indispensable guide for high school students taking AP Human Geography, a useful supplement to college texts, and a valuable guide for researchers.

AP Human Geography is a new offering in many high schools, and the entries in this encyclopedia were selected with input from AP teachers of the subject. The entries reach back to the ancient Greeks, such as Herodotus, and also cover current manmade crises, such as urban sprawl. Suggested readings, a selected bibliography, and photos complement the text.
