Becoming a Geographer
Peter Gould, a prominent, award-winning geographer who admits to having a low threshold for boredom, offers a collection of essays that reflect his eclectic research and provocative thinking. The topics range widely and include the diffusion of AIDS, mental maps, development themes in Africa, postmodernism, and the practices of teaching and writing. Becoming a Geographer expands on Gould's influential ideas and contributions to the field. His thoughts are especially valuable for what geography offers the world of learning and its capacity to help resolve urgent problems of the day.
