Overview

Harm de Blij's Human Geography takes us from our hominid ancestors to the megacities of today. It covers the major elements of the human "half" of geography. The book addresses the two binding themes of geography: the spatial perspective and the relationships between human societies and natural environments. Cases and examples from all over the world help readers to understand the plight of the poor, gender issues, and problems such as rapid population growth, and environmental change.
