The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition contains a wealth of new material, to ensure that it remains the definitive resource for a new generation of students and teachers." "The successful format of previous editions remains unchanged: the Dictionary includes short definitional entries and longer, interpretative essays on human geography and its major sub-field, thereby providing readers with a contextual background to the terms. By directing readers to the major sources for further information, the Dictionary also serves as an unparalleled companion to geographical literature."

A World in crisis? : geographical perspectives by Peter J Taylor( Book )

42 editions published between 1986 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1970′s witnessed widespread recognition of the world as a single, interconnecting whole. The 1980′s have shown that this whole is not operating as a self–sustaining system. In short we appear to live in a world in crisis– manifesting itself in hunger, poverty, debt, conflict, statelessness and war, as well as in the accelerating degradation of the natural environment. The geographical perspectives of World in Crisis? – in this completely revised and updated edition – show the interlinking nature of global, regional, and local problems and, further, that these are not uniquely economic, ecological, political or social, but all these and more. -- Publisher description

Geography since the Second World War : an international survey by R. J Johnston( Book )

29 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discipline of geography has undergone much change and growth in recent years. With growth has come diversity. Before 1945 there were differences between countries in the emphases on subject matter and research approach, although these were all related closely to three main 'models' - French, German and American. Since then, the relative importance of French and German influences has declined substantially, including within their own national territories, and the Anglo-American model has grown to world dominance. With that model, however, there is no dominant point of view but rather a multiplicity of competing approaches. These various approaches have had a different reception in other parts of the world, reflecting the base of pre-1945 geographical scholarship, the goals of geographical work set by soceities and the nature of the international contacts. The result is substantial international diversity in the practice of geography
