Evolution of Geographical Thought

Majid Husain (Author)

Evolution of Geographical Thought covers a wide canvas of the story of geographical thoughts, ideas and knowledge right from the early Greek period to modern contemporary geography. Presenting an introduction to the philosophy, history and methodology of geography, the book maps the intellectual changes in the discipline over the years.

To keep the students abreast with the recent trends in geography, and its methodological problems, the book has been updated and revised, making it a comprehensive textbook on geographical thought. The main objective of the sixth edition is to incorporate a number of relevant new topics and concepts to streamline the text which may go a long way in expanding the geographical base of the interested students about the philosophy and methodology of geography. This new edition is presented in a larger format with all improved maps and illustrations. A whole new chapter now introduces to the students a contemporary sub-discipline of Feminist Geography. A new comprehensive list of biographic notes on selected geographers is also included in this edition.

It is hoped that the present edition will prove of immense help for the students and teachers of geography alike. It will also serve the need of the aspirants of various competitive examinations, especially the Indian Administrative Service, the NET and other state level civil services examinations.
