About the Book

Human Geography is a market-leading introductory text that has for years been the cornerstone of one of our geography list. In response to the changing facts of human geography and to changing understandings of those facts, this edition is changed from the fifth edition in three substantive ways. First, there is much new content, most notably the addition of two more chapters on aspects of urban geography. Second, there is an increased emphasis on providing information for students in easily readable ways, especially though the addition of 53 new Figures, 26 new Tables, 35 new Boxes, and 45 new Glossary items. Third, much of the detailed factual content in this sixth edition is new.

  • A balance of global examples, which introduce students to the breadth of the material covered in human geography, and specifically Canadian examples, which help them relate new material to a familiar context.
  • An accessible introduction to the history, philosophy, and theories of human geography, designed to give students an excellent grounding in the discipline.
  • Consistently praised for its accessible writing style, the book is also pedagogically rich and features many learning aids for students.
  • Increased coverage of urban geography.
