Description

Since the publication of the last edition the author has increasingly realized to incorporate a few important topics about the nature of geography, its place in the classification of sciences, and time geography. To keep the students abreast with the recent trends in geography, and its methodological problems, the book has been updated and revised, making it a comprehensive textbook on geographical thought. 

Apart from strengthening the contributions of Greek, Roman, Indian and Arab geographers, the new additions in the book include: geography as a systematic science, geography as a regional science, geography as a study of areal distribution, geography as the study of relationship, the changing viewpoint in geography during the later part of the 19th century and the concept of time and space in geography. A glossary of important philosophical concepts, used in the geographical thought, has also been added. It is hoped that the present edition will prove of immese help for the students and teachers of geography alike. It will also serve the need of the aspirants of various competitive examinations, especially the Indian Administrative Service, the NET and other state level civil services examinations.
