With more than 6,400 entries on all aspects of human and physical geography, the latest edition of the classic Dictionary of Geography provides up-to-date coverage of a field as wide as the world itself. It ranges across cartography, surveying, meteorology, climatology, ecology, population, industry, and development, and comprehensively treats fast-changing topics such as plate tectonics, remote sensing, geographic information systems, and aerial differentiation. Readers will find entries on economic geography, recent developments in geopolitics, and the geography of finance as well as entries related to globalization and the anti-globalization movement, landscape restoration, the digital divide, and issues of governance. Feature panels offer in-depth information on such key areas as the history of geography, demographic transition, and central place theory. The Factfinder appendix, which provides key economic and population statistics for nearly forty countries, has been brought fully up to date. This edition also recommends web links that can be found on the regularly updated Dictionary of Geography companion website.
  • I bought this book for my daughter who is pursuing Geography at A' Levels. The book has very concise and easy definitions of geographical terms. It also has helpful equations and diagrams. My daughter said that it is extremely helpful to her course.

  • Very good dictionary

  • I bought this in my first year of studying Geography at the University of Manchester.

    It has been a really valuable source of primary stimulation for a lot of topics that I have covered and is very comprehensive. It's a British book so of course it has plenty of British examples but it's not intended to be a full and all encompassing guide, it is however, a really useful starting point and the definitions are precise and accurate.

    I highly recommend this book to anybody studying Geography, at whatever level as it is easy to use and has a wide variety of terms, topics and themes that are appropriate for most levels. I've found it to be particularly helpful in highlighting key readings to start from for essay writing.

    You won't regret buying it.

  • A cheap book which lets one use the right terms or cover more topics and look into the geography. It is a paperback and could really help with a school project or a review in the summer. The examples though are from Britain.

  • Arrived on time. Anything by Oxford is always good. Definitely recommend.

  • I really appreciate the contents and included many British examples and ths book contains all the terms I need. I really have nothing to criticize about this book.

  • A very good dictionary of Geography. Compact, but still quite complete. Would recommend it to any student of the genre. Comptetively priced.
