Encyclopedia Of Human Geography Human geography in the last decade has undergone a
conceptual and methodological renaissance that transformed it into one of the
most dynamic and innovative of the social sciences. Long a borrower of ideas
from other disciplines, geography has become a contributor in its own right,
and a “spatial turn” is evident in disciplines as diverse as Sociology, Anthropology,
and Literary Criticism.
With more than 300 entries written by an international team of leading
authorities in the field, the
Encyclopedia of Human Geography
offers a comprehensive overview of the major ideas, concepts, terms, and
approaches that characterize a notoriously diverse field. This
multidisciplinary volume provides cross-cultural coverage of human geography as
it is understood in the contemporary world and takes into account the enormous
conceptual changes that have evolved since the 1970s, including a variety of
social constructivist approaches.
