Alan Baker considers locational geographies and spatial histories, environmental geographies and environmental histories, landscape geographies and landscape histories, and regional geographies and regional histories. Seeking to bridge the "Great Divide" between history and geography, Baker identifies basic principles relating historical geography not only to history but also to geography, a reworking which signifies a "new beginning" for this scholarly hybrid.

Editorial Reviews

"Baker has produced an admirably concise and clearly written survey of the major conceptual and methodological developments in British (largely English) and American historical geography--together with those in France--since the inception of this enterprise in the early twentieth century." - Lindsay Proudfoot, Reader in Historical Geography
