Book Description

Nov. 29 1996 Hodder Arnold Publication
'Geography and Geographers' surveys the major trends in human geography since 1945 in the English-speaking world and sets their appreciation within the context of economic, social and political changes. It focuses on the debates among geographers regarding what their discipline should study and how that should be done, and draws on a wide reading of the geographical literature produced during a fifty-year period characterised by both massive growth in the number of academic geographers and several very substantial shifts in conceptions of the discipline's scientific rationale.



The pace and volume of change within the discipline show no sign of diminishing, and this fifth edition contains much new material reflecting both continued developments within established fields of inquiry and the introduction of substantially new approaches during the current decade.

Product Description

Review

...this is a fine book. It has no equal for providing a comprehensive tour d'horizon of modern human geography.
Environment and Planning A (of the fourth edition)

...the catholic sensitivity of the book and its commitment...to commentary is even more welcome now than it was 12 years ago. 'Geography and Geographers' remains a remarkable achievement.
Progress in Human Geography (of the fourth edition

'Geography and Geographers' has become an accepted text since its publication in 1979, and its success has resulted in the production of this fifth edition...it retains all the detail of the previous four versions but includes a completely new chapter on the 'cultural turn'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst textbook ever! Dec 23 2010
By Loula - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Higgeldy Piggeldy is the only way to describe this book that jumps about and fails to entertain a solid timeline or progression through geography or geographers. Don't do this to your students... Reading this was insufferable and ulimately left unfinished. I can't say I gained anything from it :(
