This collection explores the origins, development, and applications of the most fundamental and enduring concepts in human geography. Providing the most comprehensive examination of the field to date, nine essays on substantive concepts, such as nature, culture, space, time, region, and ecology, are flanked by seven essays on methodological concepts ranging from maps and models to feminism and postmodernism. More universal in scope, more conceptual in content, and more accessible in exposition than books on themes and contemporary debates in geography, Concepts in Human Geography makes an excellent text in advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in geographic methods, history, and philosophy.
