People and Place introduces students to these ways of thinking, The book covers behavioural, humanistic and cultural traditions, showing how these can lead to a nuanced understanding of how we relate to our surroundings on a day-to-day basis. The authors also explore how human geography is currently influenced by postmodern ideas stressing difference and diversity. While taking the importance of these different approaches seriously as ways of thinking about the role of place in peoples everyday lives, the book also tries to encapsulate what has been so vibrant and exciting about human geography over the last couple of decades (since the early 1980s).
