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. Designed to be used on courses on the discipline's recent history, Geography and Geographers is essential reading for students of human geogrpahy seeking a proper understanding of how their subject became what it is now.About the Author:
