These chapters in this book trace the evolution of British geography as an academic discipline during the last hundred years, and stress how the study of the world we live in is fundamental to an understanding of its problems and concerns. The principal themes covered in this volume are those of environment, place and space, and the applied geography of map making and planning. The book also addresses specific issues such as disease, urbanization, regional viability, and ethics and social problems.
