From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive text introduces the research methodologies found in both human and physical geography. Careful attention is given to the theories that underlie different types of research, to key issues in research methodology, to the collection of different types of data, and to a range of contemporary geographic techniques, both quantitative and qualitative. 

This indispensable volume starts with a broad-based grounding in the conceptual frameworks lying behind data acquisition and analysis. Foundational chapters – co-authored by human and physical geographers – also provide multiple perspectives on central questions in research methodology, while a series of central essays relating to methods and techniques focus on ways that students, as young researchers, can conceptualize objects of analysis, collect and analyze pertinent data, and interpret the results of their work. Key terminology and exercises are also included throughout.

Unique in both content and organization, Research Methods in Geography provides students with a solid conceptual and practical foundation in the basic principles and methodologies utilized in geography today.
