  • A comprehensive contextualizing essay: Introducing Philosophies, People and Practices
  • Philosophies: Written by the principal proponents, easily comprehensible accounts of: Positivistic Geographies, Humanism, Feminist Geographies, Marxism, Structuration Theory, Behavioral Geography, Realism, Post Structuralist Theories, Actor-Network Theory, and Post Colonialism
  • People: Prominent geographers explain events that formed their ways of knowing the section offers situated accounts of theory and practice by, for example David Ley, Linda McDowell, and David Harvey
  • Practices: Applied accounts of Quantification, Evidence and Positivism; Geographic Information Systems; Humanism; Geography, Political Activism, and Marxism; the Production of Feminist Geographies; Poststructuralist Theory; Environmental Inquiry in a Postcolonial World; Contested Geographies
  • Student Exercises and Glossary

Avoiding jargon – while attentive to the rigor and complexity of the ideas that underlie geographic knowledge – the text is written for students who have not met philosophical or theoretical approaches before. This is a beginning guide to geographic research and practice.

Comprehensive and accessible, it will be the core text for courses on Approaches to Human Geography; Philosophy and Geography; and the History of Geography; and a key resource for students beginning research projects.
