About the Book
This edition provides an accessible and informed introduction to the development of new approaches to human geography. It sets out to explain the key features of these new approaches, and to trace their antecedents and implications. Human Geography combines economic and cultural geography to explore the relationships between humans and their natural environment, and to track the broad social patterns that shape human societies. This edition is written in an easily accessible style with generous expositions of key claims and arguments, and with thorough cross-referencing between chapters. We hope by means of these chapter clusters and sequence to convey to students the logic and integration we recognize in the broad field of human geography. We recognize that our sense of organization and continuity is not necessarily that of instructors using this text and have designed each chapter to be reasonably self-contained, able to be assigned in any sequence that satisfies the arrangement preferred by the instructor. The new edition may serve as an important source of information students, teacher and researchers at the same time it is also useful for students preparing for UPSC and state level administrative services.
