SAGE Reference is proud to announce the Encyclopedia of Human Geography. Human geography has undergone a conceptual and methodological renaissance that has transformed the field into one of the most dynamic social sciences. Earlier traditions such as Marxist, feminist and phenomenological inquiry remain vibrant. In addition, human geographers have embraced a variety of newer philosophical approaches emanating from political economy and post-structuralism to engage new topics. Critical perspectives have been brought to bear on fields such as geographical information systems, and the long-standing schism between human and physical geography has been narrowed by the emergence of perspectives such as political ecology. This Encyclopedia, on this relatively new strand of geography, considers all these new developments and helps to further establish this field.

Author Biography - Professor Barney Warf

I am a human geographer with exceptionally wide-ranging interests. Over the years, in different professional capacities, I have had the opportunity to study a diverse plethora of topics in economic, political, and social geography. Running throughout this panoply is my interest in political economy as it pertains to the construction of space and place. I have consciously sought to position myself within the discipline at the intersections of traditional economic geography and contemporary social theory. I have found keeping a leg in each camp to be rewarding and fruitful. In this vein, my work straddles traditional quantitative, empirical approaches on the one hand and contemporary, qualitative, theoretical perspectives on the other.
