This path-breaking guide to the concepts, terms and theories used in human geography has now been fully revised to reflect and to advance changes in the nature and practice of human geography. The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition, contains a wealth of new material, to ensure that it remains the definitive resource for a new generation of students and teachers. As human geography plays an increasingly important role in interdisciplinary inquiry, so The Dictionary of Human Geography draws upon and contributes to a rich and diverse series of debates, making the dictionary an indispensable guide to contemporary travels in interdisciplinary space.

The successful format of previous editions remains unchanged: the Dictionary includes short definitional entries and longer, interpretative essays on human geography and its major sub-fields, thereby providing readers with a contextual background to the terms. By directing readers to the major sources for further information, the Dictionary also serves as an unparalleled companion to geographical literature.

The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition makes a significant contribution to the discipline's literature and will be an essential aid for undergraduate and graduate students, professional geographers and other scholars in the humanities and social sciences, and geography teachers
