View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The coverage in this book extends beyond standard accounts of particular techniques in human geography to include examples of their use, as well as examples of their relationship to the changing philosophical underpinnings of geographical research. The first section focuses on statistical methods, including recently developed methods of exploratory data analysis and techniques for analyzing categorical data. The second section covers mathematical models of spatial diffusion and auto correlation, and the final section explores quantitative methods with specific reference to humanistic approaches to geographical problems.

From the Back Cover:

The study of Human Geography has changed. From the quantitative revolution of the 1960s to the recent ‘cultural turn’,new theories, approaches, methodologies and arguments have completely remapped the discipline of Geography. Methods and Techniques in Human Geography provides the fullest available introduction and assessment of these changes in both quantitative and qualitative Geography. Clearly, concisely and generously written, Methods and Techniques in Human Geography will become the students’ companion to one of the most widely misunderstood, contested and fascinating areas of Human Geography.
