This text covered both physical and human geography concepts and was a perfect text for our capstone course for graduating Geography seniors
I found this book very useful and have integrated it in my teaching in BA introduction to Social geography
This title has been fundamental in shaping the new teaching format of my module. The concepts are easy for students to follow and the split format of discussing both human and physical principles allows students to generate a more holistic understanding of geographical thought. The inclusion of the practising chapters has been particularly useful in providing my students with an introduction into the more practical application of geography which they have enjoyed immensely.
"The key concepts" provides a comprehensive understanding of the building blocks of geography by examining its main "keywords". It is a unique textbook for every level of geography students and professionals.
This book clearly outlines key concepts that all geographers should readily be able to explain. It does so in a highly accessible way. It is likely to be a text that my students will return to throughout their degree.
The editors have done a fantastic job. This second edition is really accessible to the student and provides the key literature in the key geographical terms of scale, space, time, place and landscape.
Good all round text which will support a variety of resarch projects, of a geographical nature or content.
A goof reference book for researcher in Geography, that can be valuable even at Masters and doctoral level.
An excellent complimentary volume to the Key Methods book which concisely outlines geographical concepts, with relevance to physical and human geographers.
My class has been switched. Thus I may adopt it at a later date when the class is adopted but I will be teaching a different class in the fall.
An excellent introductory text for accessible overviews of key concepts across human and physical geography
Excellent basic text book for all students, and (to go alongside the 'dictionary of human geography') as a key 'turn-to' book when stuck on any reading.
I shall use this book in my modules Social Geographies and Geographies of Retailing and Consumption to discuss the main concepts.
We are currently redesigning our practical modules in Level 1 and Level 2. This book, allied with the key methods book, provides an appropriate focus for the course. Although I am not designing the course myself, I recommended these texts to the appropriate staff member (though I think they already had this in mind).
This book is an essential compulsory text at our master course "History and Philosophy of Geography"
Currently I refer students to an encyclopedia of human geography for many of the background concepts and themes informing the module. This work very usefully offers additional discussion of a few key notions of the course: geographical knowledge, space, time, place, scale, landscape, nature. As such it will be recommended as a key reference work. Expensive for a recommended purchase.
