Geographers Biobibliographical Studies

by Patrick H. Armstrong

Geographers Biobibliographical Studies Synopsis

This is an annual collection of studies of individuals who have made major contributions to the development of geography and geographical thought. Subjects are drawn from all periods and from all parts of the world, and include famous names as well as those less well known: explorers, independent thinkers and scholars. Each paper describes the geographer's education, life and work and discusses their influence and spread of academic ideas, and includes a select bibliography and brief chronology. The work includes a general index and a cumulative index of geographers listed in volumes published to date.

Geographers Biobibliographical Studies Press Reviews

This singular work the latest in a series issued by the Commission on the History of Geographical Thought of the International Geographical Union combines several engagingly written biographical sketches of noted geographers together with corresponding selective bibliographies...This little book, indeed the entire series, should prove helpful to scholars and students in geography departments all over as well as the inquisitive layperson. --Sanford Lakoff
