jmnw While it is true that human geography is usually very broadly defined, this is the first time I have encountered Stephenie Meyer in the canon.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads There are some odd books on this list. Perhaps a better definition of "human geography" is needed in the list description. Because I suspect neither Stephenie Myers or Norah Lofts was what they had in mind.

jmnw Wikipedia does a pretty good job on this one, I think.

"Human geography is the branch of social sciences that deals with the study of people and their communities, cultures, economies and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across space and place." — Wikipedia


Here are a couple of additional definitions from disciplinary reference books.

"Human Geography. A major field of geography that is centrally concerned with the ways in which place, space and environment are both the condition and in part the consequence of human activities." — Derek Gregory, 2009, The Dictionary of Human Geography, 5th Ed., p. 350


"[H]uman geography... refers to the study of [the Earth's] peoples, and geographical interpretations of economies, cultural identities, political territories, and societies... Human geographers analyze population trends, theorize social and cultural change, interpret geopolitical conflict, and seek to explain the geography of human economic activities around the world." — Chris Gibson, 2009, International Encyclopedia of Human Geography, vol. 5, p. 218
