What is Human Geography?
Human geography focuses on interpreting and describing the various ways in which humans in all places and cultures adapt to and possibly modify their natural geographic environments. At the local or national scale, human geographers look at how economic, political, and cultural issues are related to spatial organization in different parts of the planet.
Human Geography publishes research at the forefront of radical geography.
