Geography and Science in Britain, 1831-1939 : A Study of the British Association for the Advancement of Science Hardback

Description

This book examines the history and geography of science and the science of geography in nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Britain and the British Empire.

In considering the history and geography of the Association and of geography in local, national and imperial contexts, the book makes an important inter-disciplinary contribution to the history and geography of science and to the civic history of geography.

Attention is paid to the Association's workings, to geography as a civic science in Britain and overseas and to the connections between education and citizenship in a period of interwar 'crisis' for geography and for science. This volume will greatly extend the knowledge of the British Association for the Advancement of Science as a leading body for the promotion of science as a public good and will engage social and cultural historians, historians of science and of empire and those with interests in disciplinary history, notably historians of geography. -- .
