This book provides students in human geography with a vital resource - a collection of writings critical to understanding the field as a whole and revealing the interactions of its component parts. It is designed to give students ready access to the literature their studies are most likely to lead them to consult.

The book is divided into five parts. Parts I and II describe the nature of the enterprise and show the origins and current state of thinking on central issues. Part III is concerned with interactions between nature, culture and landscape. Part IV considers area differences and geographic units such as region, place and locality. Part V provides insights into the concepts of space, time and space-time. The editors have provided a general introduction, introductions to each part and contextual notes for each chapter. Each part concludes with sections of further reading by subject and the volume ends with a time chart of the main developments in geography.

This collection of seminal articles aims to be revealing, challenging and engaging. It amply demonstrates why human geography is a subject worthy of the student's engagement and provides a vital and rewarding resource for its understanding.

Review:

"This is an immensely useful book, aimed primarily at the undergraduate level. The editors have invested the readings with a coherence and sense of purpose that reflects very clearly their own powerful rendition of geographical tradition." Geography

"... this anthology of human geography has it all. Covering a period of over 150 years, much care has been paid to include a variety of the most eminent geographers and a selection of the most important geographical concepts, making this anthology well worth waiting for." The Geographical Journal

"This is a large, comprehensive, and excellent anthology. The editors are to be applauded for their care and judgement in selecting from the best of geographical writings from the last 150 years. In short, I strongly recommend this wonderful anthology." Robert D. Sack, University of Wisconsin

"Human Geography is an ambitious project which confronts the positive, enlightenment view of human behaviour and the processes that yield spatial patterns. Excellent value." Bryan H. Massam, York University, Canada

"The book is for all who are seriously interested in the way their subject has developed and in the origins of ideas and approaches now so familiar as to be taken for granted. Teachers and students of undergraduate ideas and methods courses will find this invaluable." Times Educational Supplement

"This is a large, comprehensive, and excellent anthology. The editors are to applauded for their care and judgement in selecting from the best of geographical writings from the last 150 years." Robert Sack, University of Wisconsin
