Geography: a modern synthesis by Peter Haggett( Book )

106 editions published between 1972 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro es un intento de presentar el espectro total de la geografía en un contexto moderno. Trata de sintetizar a dos niveles: el primero, mediante la unión de las distintas tradiciones y temas que componen dicha especialidad y, el segundo, acentuando el papel sintetizador que desempeña la geografía como un todo en relación a otras especialidades colindantes. A través de la física, y de las ciencias sociales, la geografía plantea un desafío a los alumnos para que abandonen las posiciones familiares y cómodas y se centren en las relaciones entre los seres humanos y su medio ambiente

Frontiers in geographical teaching by Richard J Chorley( Book )

31 editions published between 1965 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1965 and with a second edition in 1970. Building upon the original two Madingley Hall seminars for teachers of non-university geography in 1965, this book presents an updated research picture of the 1970 transatlantic perspective. Answering the questions "What is happening in geography" and "What impact does this have on school geography", this provided a real link for students who were then making the increasingly difficult transition from school to university geography. Originally receiving a hostile reaction from British journals, the book's diagnosis and prognosis were a forerunner of developments in methodological changes of the discipline. This work collects a series of essays delineating geographic concepts in terms of the philosophic underpinnings, assessment of the geomorphic system, climatology, and social economic and historical changing trends. Techniques are reviewed including quantitative methods for geomorphology and social geography, fieldwork both in urban areas and land-use surveys, and finally in physical planning. Final analyses examine and contrast the teaching methods and courses in American and British High Schools, Colleges and Universities
Deciphering global epidemics : analytical approaches to the disease records of world cities, 1888-1912 by A. D Cliff( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data collected for 350 cities from around the world, the authors use a variety of analytical methods to provide a global picture of what was happening to infectious epidemic diseases at a critical period in urban evolution on the international stage. The diseases considered are diphtheria, enteric fever, measles, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, and whooping cough. To place the results in a wider time context, other data are used to look both backwards and forwards for nearly a century on either side of the twenty-five-year time window. The book presents a number of results that may be interpreted in the context of debates on the causes of long-term mortality decline from these infectious diseases. It will be of interest to students of demography, history of medicine, and economic history as well as to researchers already active in these fields

The geographical structure of epidemics by Peter Haggett( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ways in which the great plagues of the past and present have spread around the world remain only partly understood. Peter Haggett's research over the last thirty years has focused on mapping and modelling the paths by which epidemics spread through human communities. The Geographical Structure of Epidemics, presents an-accessible, and illustrated account of how environmental and geographical concepts can be used to enhance our knowledge of the origins and progress of epidemics, and sometimes to slow or halt their spread."--Jacket

World atlas of epidemic diseases by A. D Cliff( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The euphoria about the defeat of epidemics which surrounded the global eradication of smallpox in the 1970s proved short-lived. The advent of AIDS in the following decade, the widening spectrum of other newly-emergent diseases (from Ebola to Hanta virus), and the resurgence of old diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria all suggest that the threat of epidemic diseases remains at an historic high. The World Atlas of Epidemic Diseases provides a timely and scholarly review of over fifty of the most important such diseases at the start of the twenty-first century." "This collection of maps, illustrations and commentary offers an authoritative overview of the global distribution of major epidemic diseases on a variety of spatial scales from the local to the global. The Atlas is arranged in a historical sequence, beginning with classic plagues such as the 'Black Death' and cholera and moving on through smallpox and measles to 'modern' diseases such as AIDS and Legionnaires' disease. Over 400 figures are incorporated, including 150 specially drawn maps supported by micrographs of the causative agents, photographs of the disease vectors, historical prints and graphs of changing incidence. The text for each disease includes discussion of its nature and epidemiological features, its origin (where known) and historical impacts, and its global status at the start of the twenty-first century. The book concludes with an informed look towards the future, assessing the probable impacts of major medical advances on life expectancy and the chances of success of programmes for the global eradication of diseases such as poliomyelitis and measles." "The World Atlas of Epidemic Diseases will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the spread, control and eradication of epidemic disease."--Jacket
The dictionary of human geography by R. J Johnson( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This guide to the concepts, terms and theories used in human geography has now been fully revised to reflect and to advance changes in the nature and practice of human geography. 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." "The Dictionary of Human Geography, Fourth Edition will be an essential aid for undergraduate and graduate students, professional geographers and other scholars in the humanities and social sciences, and geography teachers."--Jacket
Diffusing geography : essays for Peter Haggett( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Haggett's contribution to geography, in a career which has spanned more than 30 years, has been to retain a notion of the discipline as a whole with its own outlook and methods. This book examines his role in the development of such areas as geographical methodology, locational analysis, medical geography, studies of the Pacific Basin, and geography in higher education, which together reflect his unique overview and ability to further a varied but unified view of geography throughout his work. The essays offer an illuminating multiplicity of approaches, subject matter, and informing preconceptions, yet all in their different ways touch upon and celebrate themes in the life of Peter Haggett himself. This volume will be welcome not only to those already familiar with Peter Haggett's work, but also to those interested in the future of the discipline as a whole

Geography : a global synthesis by Peter Haggett( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haggett's book presents geography as an integrated and integrating discipline, seeing both environmental and human geography and systematic and regional geography as intrinsically linked. It argues the facts of geographic distributions, the techniques by which geographers study the world, and the philosophy which informs their analyses all a part of a global synthesis. This synthesis operates at a range of spatial scales from the local up to the planetary system itself. It ranges in time back to human origins and onward to human futures. The book sees geography as an essential discipline for students wishing to understand their changing world at the start of a new millennium
