About the Book :

Recents ramifications in geographical pursuits are beyond the reach of most of the professional geographers. This three volumes work documents this wide spectrum of geographical knowledge with a view to disseminate the modern trends and concepts in geography with particular reference to the present conceptual revolution in the discipline. The first volume contains review articles in the areas of conceptual development, physical geography and geomorphology. The second volume survey recent advances in agricultural geography and economic geography with reference to resource utilisation. The third volumes are confined to the vital theme of human geography. The papers have been contributed by academicians and research scholars from all over the world in the various field of geography and related applied discinlines. This makes the character of this work multidisciplinary. The emphasis of these research studies is on the theoretical and the methodological treatment as distinct from the traditional approach of regional analysis which had hitherto been the hallmark of all geographical research and studies. This work in its entirety constitutes a useful and valuable contribution as it presents a vertical and horizontal cross section of geographical research and contains the latest views and thinking in the field of geography. Geographers, sociologists, ecologists, town planners, national policy makers, administrators and many others will find work of lasting value for research and reference.
