Including ten new chapters on nature, globalization, development and risk, and a new section on practicing geography, this is a completely revised and updated edition of the best-selling, standard student resource.

Key Concepts in Geography explains the key terms - space, time, place, scale, landscape - that define the language of geography. It is unique in the reference literature as it provides - in one volume - concepts from both human geography and physical geography; especially relevant now that environment is so critical to our understanding of geography.

Four introductory chapters on different intellectual traditions in geography situate and introduce the entries on the key concepts. Each entry then comprises a short definition, a summary of the principal arguments, a substantive 5,000-word discussion, the use of real-life examples, and annotated notes for further reading.

Written in an accessible way - by established figures in the discipline - the definitions provide thorough explanations of key geographical concepts. Each discussion provides references to, and summaries of, the key literature; as well as an examination of the history and use of each concept, illustrated with everyday examples. Key Concepts in Geography is a comprehensive overview of the all the core concepts that undergraduates of geography must understand to complete their degree.
