Concise Encyclopedia of Human Geography

About the eBook

With 78 specially commissioned entries written by a diverse range of contributors, this essential reference book covers the breadth and depth of human geography to provide a lively and accessible state of the art of the discipline for students, instructors and researchers.

Carefully curated by two internationally recognised scholars in the field, entries are written by both distinguished and up and coming researchers and encompass the key ideas, concepts, and theories in human geography. The Encyclopedia examines both long standing subdisciplinary fields in human geography like economic geography and urban geography, but also more recent ones such as emotional geographies and indigenous geographies, making a point about the move to plural geographies. The selection of entries reflects both the influence of established developments, such as the ‘cultural turn’, and new advances including the growing interest in Big Data, the more committed focus on decolonization of the discipline, and interest in research on the Anthropocene.

This will be fundamental reading for human geography students, particularly undergraduates looking for a succinct and accessible resource for current thinking in the field.

Key Features:

  • 78 concise entries from diverse international contributors

  • Encapsulates the state of the art of research in the field

  • Highlights new trends

  • Explores the ways in which human geography is starting to decolonize
