Human geography is a diverse and vibrant subject. It aims to understand human occupancy of the earth's surface: the places created; boundaries constructed; environments altered; and connections made by people as they seek to meet their various needs and wants. Because of its high intellectual ambition, human geography is a broad and plural subject in which a wide range of research is undertaken.

Making sense of the field can be challenging, even for seasoned practitioners. This four-part, five volume collection provides a map for anyone seeking to reconnoitre the landscape of human geography today. Focusing mostly on Anglophone contributions, it begins with a discussion of the histories and philosophies of geographical knowledge and continues through to the central concerns of the discipline: space (in relation to productions, practices and performances); and nature (in relation to distinctions between 'culture' and 'nature').

Part One: Histories, Philosophies and Politics

Part Two: Theories, Methods and Practices

Part Three: Space, Place and Landscape

Part Four: Nature, Environment and the Non-Human
