Overview

Introducing Human Geographies is the leading guide to human geography for undergraduate students, explaining new thinking on essential topics and discussing exciting developments in the field.

This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and coverage is extended with new sections devoted to biogeographies, cartographies, mobilities, non-representational geographies, population geographies, public geographies and securities. Presented in three parts with 60 contributions written by expert international researchers, this text addresses the central ideas through which human geographers understand and shape their subject. Part I: Foundations engages students with key ideas that define human geography’s subject matter and approaches, through critical analyses of dualisms such as local-global, society-space and human-nonhuman. Part II: Themes explores human geography’s main sub-disciplines, with sections devoted to biogeographies, cartographies, cultural geographies, development geographies, economic geographies, environmental geographies, historical geographies, political geographies, population geographies, social geographies, urban and rural geographies. Finally, Part III: Horizons assesses the latest research in innovative areas, from mobilities and securities to non-representational geographies.

This comprehensive, stimulating and cutting edge introduction to the field is richly illustrated throughout with full colour figures, maps and photos. These are available to download on the companion website, located at www.routledge.com/9781444135350.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A truly wonderful book, vastly wide ranging in its coverage and tremendously exciting in its approach. It is lively, engaging and highly accessible, and provides a thorough grounding for students learning to interpret the world through geographers' eyes. The editors have crafted an indispensable companion for undergraduates setting out on a geographical journey." Jon Shaw, Associate Head, School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Plymouth University, UK.

"A substantial expansion of earlier editions, though still a fantastic, progressive, critical introduction to the discipline. The presentation is clear, the writing is wonderfully accessible and the updated selection of themes remains relevant and challenging." Michael Collyer, Senior Lecturer in Geography at the University of Sussex, UK.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"For any human geographers out there I definitely recommend this book. Great handy tool for any geographer. 10/10!"

Amazon reviewer March 2010

"This is now 'the text' to buy and students are no longer being encouraged by us to buy more than this one text. ... It's a cracking textbook and all of the above [new content] can only add to its attractiveness and significance."

Reviewer Dr Dan Clayton at St Andrews
