Geography is a flourishing and diverse subject, drawing on a range from geology to the social sciences. Small and Witherick's highly successful Dictionary has already in its first two editions proved its value as a comprehensive 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 and has an extensive cross-referencing system which enables the reader easily to identiiy associated terms.

Warum reden alle vom Raum? Ist die Zeit der wissenschaftlichen Vorherrschaft der Zeit vorüber? Was tritt unter den Bedingungen der Globalisierung an die Stelle eines schwächelnden Fortschritts- und Entwicklungsparadigmas? Wenn mittlerweile fast alle Disziplinen in den Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften damit beschäftigt sind, ihre Diskurse zu »verräumlichen«, ist dann die Rede von einem »Spatial Turn« angemessen? Diese Anthologie leistet zweierlei: Zum ersten Mal erscheint auf dem deutschen Buchmarkt eine fächerübergreifende Anthologie zum Spatial Turn und zum ersten Mal findet eine Diskussion auch unter Beteiligung der Geographen statt - jenen »Raumspezialisten«, die sich in jüngster Zeit als scharfe Kritiker der fächerübergreifenden Raumkonjunktur profiliert haben.
