Geography

Our Routledge Geography Handbooks showcase the very best in cutting edge research from across the discipline and the related field of urban studies.  Bringing together authors from across the globe our titles cover subjects as diverse as political ecology, hazards and disasters, urban regeneration, local and regional development and urban ecology.  New topics are added regularly as authors respond to unfolding events and topical subjects within this dynamic discipline.   Forthcoming titles include: Mapping and Cartography, Spaces of Urban Politics, Food and Environment and Environmental Justice. This subject’s full title listing can be downloaded here. As long as there are a minimum of titles available within a subject area then these titles can be purchased within a Subject Collection. New Subject Collections are created annually as new titles are added to the platform.
