First published in 1979, Geography and Geographers continues to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the field of human geography available. As such, it is essential reading for all students of geography. Geography and Geographers provides a survey of the major debates, key thinkers and schools of thought in human geography in the English-speaking world, setting them within the context of economic, social, cultural and political, as well as intellectual, changes. It focuses on the debates among geographers regarding what their discipline should study and how that should be done, and draws on a wide reading of the geographical literature produced during a fifty-year period characterised by both growth in the number of academic geographers and substantial shifts in conceptions of the discipline's scientific rationale. This seventh edition has been extensively revised and updated to reflect developments in the field and the ways that geography and its history is understood and taught. But, above all, the book retains its key strength of offering a thoroughly contemporary perspective on human geography ideal for new and more experienced students alike.
