Eds. Nicholas Clifford, Shaun French and Gill Valentine. Now in a new edition, "Key Methods in Geography" is an introduction to the principal methodological issues involved in the collection, analysis and presentation of geographical information. It is unique in the reference literature for providing an overview of qualitative and quantitative methods for human and physical geography. An accessible primer, it will be used by students as a reference throughout their degree, on all issues from research design to presentation. This new edition has been fully revised and updated and includes new chapters on internet mediated research, diaries as a research method, making observations and measurements in the field, and the analysis of natural systems. This title is organized into four sections: getting started in geographical research; generating and working with data in human geography; generating and working with data in physical geography; and, representing and interpreting geographical data. Each chapter comprises: a short definition; a summary of the principal arguments; a substantive 5,000-word discussion; use of real-life examples; and, annotated notes for further reading. The teaching of research methods is integral to all geography courses, "Key Methods in Geography, 2nd Edition" explains all of the key methods with which geography undergraduates must be conversant.
