An Historical Geography of England and Wales
This text has been designed to cover all aspects and phases of the historical geography of England and Wales in a single volume. In this enlarged form, the treatment of standard themes has been completely rewritten to take account of recent work and shifts in viewpoint while its over-all coverage has been extended to embrace newer themes like symbolic landscapes and the geography of the inter-war period. Particular aspects of this book are that it covers from prehistory to 1939, uses a range of data sources and approaches, is illustrated with particular emphasis on key themes and that it offers a revision of the first edition with a wider range of topics.
