About the Book

Human Geography has been defined as the synthetic study of the relationship between human societies and their environment. The primary objective of this subject is to identify the human problems and the role of man in shaping the face of the earth.

The new edition of Human Geography is a popular textbook for geography students at the university level. It is essentially designed to introduce the discipline in a social science perspective. One of the distinguishing features of the book is that it covers a wide canvas of Human Geography. The text has been written in a lucid, cogent and convincing style, and illustrated with appropriate maps and examples from the developed and developing countries of the world. The data about the human phenomena change rapidly in space and time. In response to the changing facts of Human Geography and positive feedback from the civil services aspirants and the teachers of geography, this edition has been thoroughly revised. Documented with hundreds of maps and diagrams, dozens of tables and plates, the book shall be of immense help to the students, teachers and researchers alike. As with previous editions, the book retains its comprehensive coverage that has made it an indispensable resource for students.
