From the Back Cover:

The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Human Geography is anindispensable overview of the field. Unparalleled in scope andoffering both historical and contemporary perspectives, this volumeprovides an up-to-date, authoritative synthesis of the disciplineof human geography.   

With contributions from the world's leading authorities in thediscipline, the companion is divided into three major sections:Foundations, tracing the history of human geography from theancient Greeks to the late nineteenth century; The Classics,surveying not only the British and US roots of the discipline, butalso the significant German and French contributions; andContemporary Approaches, highlighting the ways in which thefield is subdivided and how human geography is practiced today.Each theme in the contemporary section is addressed by twocontributions which offer distinctive perspectives. This innovativeapproach enables the companion to highlight divergentinterpretations and conceptual disputes, rather than suggesting aconsensus of opinion as the field has developed in recentyears.
