Susan Mayhew is a geography teacher and the author of Masterstudies Geography. Her current research interests are in feminist and historical geography with particular reference to the reification of concept through place.
The fourth edition of this standard reference book has been completely revised and has more than 300 new entries, 3,500 entries in total. New definitions include economic geography and neo-liberalism. This is a basic dictionary with short entries and definitions. It covers all areas of geography in both main subfields, human and physical geography. Citations appear in the text of the definition, though no overall bibliography is provided. What makes this title stand out in the field currently is the selection of Web resources available along with the book. In the electronic edition, the Web links are from the individual entries. In the print edition, a Web site icon is provided that will direct the reader from a general URL to a large collection of pages that can provide further explanation of a particular term. This collection of material adds a great depth to the dictionary. Cross-references are marked with asterisks in the print edition, though quick links in the electronic edition make jumping around the text easier. Some images and drawings available in the print form of the dictionary are not available in the electronic version; for instance, an excellent diagram explaining central place theory, available in the book, is nowhere to be located online. Furthermore, text in shading would be more clearly visible than black-and-white text. Opt for the print version, if available, as the online version lacks some material found in the print and does not make the best use of the online format. Overall, a well-done title and useful for college students and teachers. --Steve Stratton
