International Encyclopaedia of Geography (In 10 Volumes)

Amarjit Sinha (Author) Subhah Mehtani (Author)
Synopsis Geography is the science of place and space.  Geographers ask where things are located on the surface of the earth, why they are located where they are, how places differ from one another, another interact with the environment.  The foundation of modern geography as an academic subject stems from the writings of Friedrich Humboldt and Johann Ritter, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, who for the first time defined geography as a major branch of scientific inquiry.  It is an all-encompassing discipline that foremost seeks to understand the world and all of its human and natural complexities-not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be.

The present encyclopaedia of geography is a compendium of ten volumes, which provides authentic information of various topics of geography.  It aims to encourage the development of readers’ geographical knowledge with clear in-depth material making key concepts more accessible.
