This excellent book remains the most comprehensive and accessible introduction to research methods in Geography today. The new edition will be essential reading for any student undertaking independent research as part of their degree
A new generation of scholars explain how to get started with geographical research. Geography is an academic subject that rapidly evolves. What was in vogue on year can soon be passé. However, Key Methods in Geography provides a mixture that both preserves the best of the past and introduces what is both more new and most promising. Unnecessary verbiage is out – clarity is in.
This collection is a valuable resource for geography students and researchers at all levels, in human geography, physical geography, and GIScience. It stands apart from many methods texts by speaking to the complete research process – from conceptualizing and designing geographical research, to collecting and analyzing many different forms of evidence, to representing results and finding in diverse ways.
This is an excellent first stop for any geography dissertation student - and very well placed for those research across the physical-human divide.
Having looked through the wide selection of methods discussed in the book, I think that this is perfect for the Researching Manchester course I'm leading, which aims to give Year 1 students a broad overview of many different approaches.
This book is valuable and comprehensive in content, but practical for students learning in urban and regional planning field.
Excellent textbook that provides a state-of-the-art overview on different key methods students will need during their master courses and for their final exam.
This is a valuable volume that provides students a comprehensive overview of the key debates and practical challenges involved in geographic research methods. For academics, it will serve as a useful resource and entry point into new methods
A general book with a broad perspective on methods complemented with nice and practical examples.
An indispensable guide to Key Methods in Geography. Inspirational.
Landscape Architecture covers a wide range of disciplines, from Arts, Humanities and Sciences, this book covers the basic steps in setting up a research project extremely well, and these are just as applicable in Landscape Architecture as Geography. The structure and sequence is excellent, tips in chapter 4 are helpful and the chapters on technology such as GIS and the chapters on Spatial Data and on Audit are very helpful for anyone considering topics on larger scale Landscape Planning.
This is a wonderful text for students approaching their independent study projects and dissertations. The text includes a variety of approaches for doing research in Geography and offers essential insights and reflections on the reasons for using certain methods and the implications of using them.
Highly recommended for getting an up-to-date overview on (as the title suggests) key methods in geosciences.
The text presents clearly written introductions to a comprehensive range of research techniques. I recommend this book to geography and environmental management undergraduates and postgraduates beginning to examine potential research methodologies.
