A required text Jan. 3 2007
By M. Antos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My graduate class raced through this text. It was dry, but informative. Certainly not the book you should read for pleasure. By itself it would not have helped me grasp the history of geography, as its title suggests. It was only with the context provided by the prof that things started to gel.

a white man's history for white men Sept. 12 2010
By tornadoalley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is another history about wealthy white men, written primarily for wealthy white men. The achievements of other types of people are almost entirely left out and it appears Livingstone does not even recognize the existence of others who are not like him. Sure, the history is solid- names and dates are there, the privileged scholarly circles are documented. However, he totally fails in his attempt to write a different kind of history in which geographic developments are situated in societal contexts. It is a great example of the problems inherent in oblivious masculinist discourse.
