A simply marvelous and well-written introduction to the flourishing field of Human Geography, written by prominent thinkers, and with a keen eye for critical debates and topical themes. Highly recommended." - Professor Henk van Houtum, Radboud University Nijmegen "Exceptional throughout" - Dr Chris Bear, Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences, Aberystwyth University "A comprehensive and critical textbook that really covers all the bases" - Dr Colm Breathnach, Geography Programme, University of Strathclyde "A superb introduction to Human Geography, and a book that students will also find an important resource for courses in later years. This book has always had great strengths in economic and political geography, and the latest edition both extends its scope, and shows why human geography is a vital perspective in understanding the key issues of our times." - Professor David Gilbert, Royal Holloway, University of London "A lively, stimulating, interactive and colourful student-centred appraoch - the textbook of choice for undergraduate geography students" - Professor Mark Boyle, National University of Ireland, Maynooth "It is rare to find an introductory textbook that successfully combines clearly outlined foundational concepts with critical reflection on state of the art understandings of the world around us; this new edition of An Introduction to Human Geography does exactly that. This is a persuasive and comprehensive teaching resource for students and educators alike." - Professor Anna Davies, Department of Geography, Trinity College DublinReseña del editor:
