Social geography has been one of the most important growth areas within the field of geography in recent decades. It has brought within geographical analysis a wide range of new topics, such as ethnic segregation, crime and environment and inner city problems. First published in 1986, this edited collection surveys the field of social geography. Using key international case studies from across Europe, North America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, authors discuss the different trends, leading figures and issues of concern in social geography throughout the world. This is a comprehensive and accessible study that will be of particular interest to students of social and human geography, urban and environmental planning.
