Arnold, 1999 - Science - 368 pages
This vibrant account of the scope and excitement of contemporary human geographies, it provides novel and accessible material in short, digestible chapters on a range of issues, from society and nature to technoscapes and the media. The text is divided into three main sections. The first - Foundations - works through a number of underlying debates that are stimulating much contemporary innovation within human geography. The second - Themes - provides a sub-disciplinary structured account of this innovation, outlining its contribution to questions of development, economy, environment, history, politics, society, and culture. The final section - Contexts - highlights how these questions come together in particular 'spaces' and 'places', emphasising how much of the best contemporary work in human geography blurs traditional sub-disciplinary distinctions. Written by an international team of contributors, this text represents the cutting edge of its subject and will beessential reading for all students of human geography.
