Economic Geography

H.M. Saxena (Author)

Economic Geography is a highly developed branch of geography, which focuses on production, distribution and consumption activities. This text on economic geography, divided into three parts, takes account of recent trends and theoretical developments in the subject. Part I is introductory in nature and deals with basic concepts of economy and economic geography. Part II deals with resources and their utilisation. In all, ten chapters relating to world agriculture, livestock, mineral and power resources, industries and transportation have been included. Part III explains the theories related to agricultural and industrial location, spatial variations in production and transport costs, decision-making process and economic regionalisation. The book is thus a brief introduction of the major themes of economic geography and is written in an accessible and lucid style, well supported by illustrations and tables. It is primarily designed for the postgraduate and graduate students of geography and will also be useful for competitive examinations as well as for the general readers.
