A first-year introduction to human geography, which seeks to introduce the exciting aspects of contemporary human geography. It contains 40 chapters written by leading geographers from around the world, includes case studies, and provides a glossary of key terms and concepts. The textbook is structured around three main sections. The first works through a number of underlying debates that are stimulating contemporary innovation within human geography. The second part provides a sub-disciplinary structured account of this innovation, outlining its contribution to questions of development, economy, environment, history, politics and society, and culture. The final section highlights how these questions come together in work on particular "spaces" and "places", emphasizing how much of the contemporary work in human geography blurs traditional sub-disciplinary distinctions.
