'Excellent contributions from key authors on the most pressing geographical topics of the day' Dr Michelle Newman, Coventry University

'This book serves as a bible for students who undertake human geography encompassing a rich diversity of strands' Dr Samarthia Thankappan, University of York

The fifth edition of this widely used text provides a global overview of the major topics within human geography, including food security and population, geopolitics and territory, inequality and power, production, consumption, the global financial system, governance and now a new chapter on citizenship. Substantial and comprehensively updated chapters ensure balanced treatment across the range of contemporary human geography.

Focusing on key geographical challenges facing the world in the early twenty-first century, stimulating analysis provides a thorough examination of the diverse forces that shape economies and societies. Themes, issues and links are highlighted and emphasised to present a holistic view of what the editors describe as our ... interconnected, contradictory, complex, conflict-ridden and fantastically diverse planet. All chapters are written by specialists in the field and offer original, critical and engaging perspectives.
