Example text

It is in the nature of academic disciplines to subdivide and to compartmentalize knowledge. Geography is unusual in that it sits at the intersections between the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. This means that it internalizes both the disadvantages of disciplinarity and the potential advantages of multidisciplinarity. Much of the promise of geography lies on the margins between the sub-disciplines, between human and physical geography or, for example, between economic and cultural geography.

Human geography is not just about describing the spatial manifestations of economy and society: it is about explaining how space is configured and shapes economies, societies and social processes. Thus, geography is not a passive outcome; it is a critical component of social and economic processes. More than that, geography in its broader definition provides an interface between the human and the natural worlds. We would argue that geography is a key subject for the twenty-first century, in part because many of the challenges that face humanity are at the interface between human societies and natural environments.

No matter what its contents, or how they are organized, the finished product will not satisfy everyone. The book not only has to engage the attention and interest of the students who will learn with it, but also has to satisfy the instructors who will teach with it. Thus we are caught on the horns of a dilemma: how to make the text as accessible and as user-friendly as possible to students, while not appearing to be too naïve to the instructor assigning it. We also have to acknowledge that each geography programme is different, at least in detail if not in overall objective, and that a textbook fulfilling every need would be very large indeed.
