This excellent new text guides students carefully, intelligently and sympathetically through the process of doing a human geography dissertation. It offers grounded advice - from the question of what a dissertation is, to the mechanics of data analysis - which will be indispensable for students researching the full diversity of topics covered by contemporary human geography.
This book will be an invaluable read for all Human Geography dissertation students. It conveys the excitement and possibilities of Human Geography research, whilst also alerting the reader to its challenges and pitfalls.

This book is fantastic! It is recommended reading for our second-year research design course, and I have used some of the ‘dissertation tips’ videos in lectures on this course during 2018/9.

Of all the books that I recommend to my dissertation students, this book is always the first. Writing a dissertation is a daunting task, certainly the most demanding and challenging part of a degree, and Kim Peters, with her accessible style and useful and highly relevant advice, makes it a bit less intimidating. Your Human Geography Dissertation guides students through all the stages of their dissertation, helping them to think geographically, refine their research question and choose the appropriate research methods.
With this book as their guide your students will be able to achieve what it promises: design, do and deliver.
