The Scope of Geography, Hardback Book


This book introduces the beginning student to the major concepts, materials and tools of the discipline of geography.

While it presents geographic theory, as whole and for each of its parts, the chief emphasis is on concrete analysis and example rather than on abstraction, an approach which has proven more successful for undergraduate courses than those with a more heavily theoretical bias.

The text was extensively re-written for the third edition, which enhanced its clarity and effectiveness, with expanded cartographic coverage.
