This is a modern Human Geography in the tradition of the great French school of Vidal de la Blache, Jean Brunhes and Albert Demangeon. Wide in its scope, it studies the progress of civilisation in relation to the major types of environment - tropical, temperate and cold; the arid lands, mountains and coasts. Throughout there runs the theme of developing techniques in man's use of his environment. Special attention is given to the key industries - textiles, metals and chemicals - and to the development of transport. First published in 1966 this is the third impression 1968. 522pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Translated by E. D. Laborde. Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
