Geography is a flourishing and diverse field of study, drawing on a range of disciplines from geology to the social sciences. Cosmo's highly successful dictionary has already in its first two editions proved its value as an invaluable guide to, and in many instances explanation and illustration of the principles, concepts, and terminology of geography in the 1990s.
This new, enlarged edition reflects advances in the discipline in recent years. Many new entries have been added, a significant proportion of which relate to the critical interface between human and physical considerations. Existing entries have been revised and updated and the dictionary now includes over 2000 terms widely used by modern geographers. It provides a detailed definition and explanation of each and has an extensive cross-referencing system which enables the reader easily to identify associated terms.
The Cosmo Dictionary of Geography provides:-
An up-to-date explanation of terms from all branches of the subject.
Concise definitions of terms and concepts.
Detailed entries of important areas.
Comprehensive, modern and packed with vital information.
Informative and explanatory illustrations and diagrams.
