Review:

'The second edition of The Student's Companion to Geography provides a comprehensive guide to the discipline throughout the English-speaking world. The authorship contains a welcome mix of old and young, and the style is refreshing throughout. The content is, of course, extremely wide ranging and will prove very helpful to anyone wishing to "get started" on some aspect of the subject. The coverage underlines the rich variety within the subject and proves without doubt that geography does matter!' Professor Tim Burt, University of Durham

'The Companion is a resource that will be of great value to geography students throughout their undergraduate careers in higher education. [It will] encourage readers to think about their discipline, to which this volume provides an excellent gateway.' Emeritus Professor Gregory, University of London

Update from its first edition to include online resources and discussion of new trends in the field, this is a solid resource, with each essay well written and concise, that will prove valuable for geography students throughout their academic studies. C.A.Groves, Ball State University

About the Author:
