The interactions of humans with their changing environment is the main objective of the study of human geography. The interests of geographers range widely, but their perspective addresses the significance of place, spatiality, and landscape as the settings in which humans live. This outstanding reference work is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and in-depth coverage of the discipline. Its sources are authoritative and international, and represent a critical overview of the range of issues that human geographers address, of the methods they use in their research, and of the relevance of human geography to the world. Since publication of the International Encyclopedia of Human Geography in 2009 much has changed in the field. Our world is more diverse, multicultural, and multinational. The new edition embraces this diversity by design, and captures the ways in which humans share places, as well as the differences - according to gender, race, nationality, location and other factors - that make people and places different. Questions of, for example, politics, economics, race relations, and migration, are introduced and discussed through a geographical lens. The first edition was celebrated as providing an authoritative overview of all aspects of the field, covering wide-ranging topics across social sciences. The second edition sees an enhanced focus on key areas such as population, nature/environment and social, cultural and political geography. Once again it will assist the audience in their research by providing factual information, historical perspective, theoretical approaches, reviews of the literature, and provocative topical discussion to stimulate creative thinking. Ultimately, this second edition will ensure readers gain a better understanding of the issues of a diverse world via the tools of human geography. The International Encyclopedia of Human Geography, Second Edition, is an easily accessible, interdisciplinary and fully comprehensive source of information in what is a fascinating discipline of social science, and is essential reading for students, researchers, members of the media and public policy analysts interested in this subject. The most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of human geography in one place Extensive scope and depth of coverage Emphasis on how geographers interact with, understand, and contribute to problem solving in the contemporary world and contemporary social problems Emphasis on how geography is relevant in a social and interdisciplinary context

This title was first published in 2002: This volume focuses on the Roman provinces of Syria and Arabia, above all the lands now within Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. The first articles look at questions of geography, cartography and toponymy, particularly in Strabo, Pliny and Ptolemy. The following sections are concerned with settlement patterns and urban development in the region. In the Roman and early Byzantine periods, the inland areas underwent a gradual transformation, from a semi-sedentary, lightly populated and predominantly rural region, to one of large cities and a network of prosperous, socially sophisticated villages, linked by a network of roads. That change is documented by a wealth of epigraphy from both the urban communities and their outlying settlements (the subject of several articles). By the 4th century, too, Christianity had become the dominant religion and remained such until the arrival of Islam.

No work has ever been produced previously that shows how historically geography has been constructed as a subject for the senior years of secondary schooling in Western Australia from 1917 to 1997. In doing so, this book contributes to the existing corpus of international research on the history of curriculum and particularly the history of geography as a senior secondary school subject. Much of it is based on primary sources, including the textbooks and atlases used, along with syllabus manuals and geography examination papers. It also provides a framework for investigating the construction of senior secondary school geography curricula in other constituencies, and could act as a model for engaging in further research in curriculum history for other school subjects state-wide, nationally and internationally. The book also makes an important contribution to the fields of curriculum design, curriculum development and curriculum innovation. It will be of great interest to historians of education, comparative educationists, education leaders, policy makers and librarians.

Women are the exclusive focus of the 38th volume of Geographers. For the first time in the serial's history, the entire volume is devoted to important work of distinguished female geographers, amply demonstrating how these scholars' professional lives enrich the discipline's history. It also illustrates how reading and writing their biographies not only expands our understanding of geography's past, but points to its more diverse future. The collection includes biographies of Doreen Massey, winner of geography's 'Nobel prize', the prix Vautrin-Lud, for her remarkable contribution to geography and neighbouring disciplines which discovered the importance of space through her work; Helen Wallis, geographer and historian of cartography who for many years had charge of the UK's foremost collection of maps; Alice Saunier-Seïté, who applied her geographical training and formidable energy to teaching and educational reform in France; Isabel Margarida André, who lived through a turbulent political period in her native Portugal and meticulously investigated its effect on women and political geography; and the many women who helped to create the UK's first Geography department - the University of Oxford's, School of Geography - including Fanny Herbertson, Nora MacMunn, Marjorie Sweeting, Mary Marshall, Barbara Kennedy and other women geographers who are memorialised in a group article.
