Description - Human Geography of the UK by Irene Hardill

This new core textbook for introductory courses in human geography provides first- and second-year undergraduates with a comprehensive thematic and regional approach to the changing human geography of the UK at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century. Covering local, regional, national, European and global issues, it also explores in some detail topics which are part of the lived experience of undergraduates themselves, such as crime, unemployment, social exclusion and AIDS. The concern is not only with broad regional differences, but also the more complex patterns of geographical inequality - within regions and cities and between town and country. The focus is on the 1990s and the dynamic forces that have moulded the geography of the UK since the tumultuous years of Conservative rule. The contemporary condition of the UK is set within a longer period of historical and geographical change. Economic, social, political and cultural forces are given equal attention together with positioning issues like gender and ethnicity, all central to the social and economic transformations of recent years. User-friendly textbook features include: *chapter introductions, summaries and important theoretical principles *up-to-date further reading and key on-line sources *case studies, examples and revision questions. Human Geography of the UK has been written by three authors who contribute their specialisms across political, economic and social geography as well as their experience in textbook authorship, and introductory level teaching.
