Encyclopedia of human geography

Broadly speaking, the approximately 300 entries presented in this encyclopedia of human geography cover cartography and geographic information systems, economic geography, geographic theory and history, political geography, social and cultural geography, and urban geography. Surveying the major ideas, concepts, terms, and approaches in the field since the 1970s, editor Warf has sought to provide balanced coverage of different schools of thought and issues from around the world and to take into account the growth of geographic information systems. Entries are cross-referenced and provide guides to further reading.
