Synopsis

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

Noel Castree is a Professor of Geography at the University of Manchester. He previously worked at the University of Liverpool (1995-1999) and the University of Wollongong (2014-17). He has long-standing interests in understanding people-environment relationships and has used Marxist theory to explore how capitalism affects the non-human world. His current research examines the ways research into global environmental change is shaping policy and public debate about the Earth's future. Noel Castree has published widely within and beyond Geography in journal ranging from Antipode and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers to Environmental Humanities and Nature Climate Change. He has written or edited eight books and 3 reference works. He is the managing editor of Progress in Human Geography.
