Human Geography explores how human behavior affects the earths surface. In the course of this exploration, the text engages with subjects such as globalization, politics, biology, economics, philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, and global warming. Illustrated with a well-balanced mix of international and Canadian examples, Human Geography offers a comprehensive introduction to the disciplines essential concepts and methods. It also traces the evolution of the field, emphasizing how human geography continues to develop in response to changing human needs.
In response to the changing facts of human geography and to changing understandings of those facts, the seventh edition is changed from the sixth edition in four substantive ways. First, there is much new content, both in the form of some new sections and also new material added to existing discussions. Second, there is an increased emphasis on providing information for students in easily readable ways though the addition of new figures, tables, and boxes, through the redrawing of all of the maps, and through an enhanced listing of helpful websites at the end of each chapter. Third, much of the detailed factual content in this seventh edition is new, especially relating to topics such as environmental change, population, political developments, and economic change. Finally, the entire text has been revised for clarity and readability, and a number of errors have been corrcted.

"The text continues to get better with each new edition. Bill Norton and Oxford University Press are to be commended for the amount of work that has gone into this text. I continue to use it in my course because, quite simply, it works for me and my students." --Walter Peace, McMaster University
"Extremely well written and easy to read with substantive and meaningful Canadian content, highlighted issues, and extensive (but easy to understand and often simplified) graphics. The introductory chapter is particularly engaging with respect to getting students excited about the topic. Each subsequent chapter is well justified (which also helps to engage students), and includes a good solid range of topics and issues that are sure to further engage students." --Sean T. Doherty, Wilfrid Laurier University
"William Norton's work and the Oxford Human Geography text have become well established as THE introductory text in the discipline. When asked, my students consistently report a high level of satisfaction with the quality of the work and its readability, compared to other texts and course readings." --Michael Fox, Mount Allison University
