From the Back Cover:

The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Human Geography is an indispensable overview of the field. Unparalleled in scope and offering both historical and contemporary perspectives, this volume provides an up-to-date, authoritative synthesis of the discipline of human geography.   

With contributions from the world's leading authorities in the discipline, the companion is divided into three major sections: Foundations, tracing the history of human geography from the ancient Greeks to the late nineteenth century; The Classics, surveying not only the British and US roots of the discipline, but also the significant German and French contributions; and Contemporary Approaches, highlighting the ways in which the field is subdivided and how human geography is practiced today. Each theme in the contemporary section is addressed by two contributions which offer distinctive perspectives. This innovative approach enables the companion to highlight divergent interpretations and conceptual disputes, rather than suggesting a consensus of opinion as the field has developed in recent years.
