Changing Geography: Countryside conflicts

Richard Yarwood

Series Editor: John Bale

Key Stage: Post-16

Pages: 48

ISBN: 978-1-84377-001-5

Published: 2002



Changing Geography will introduce your A-level students to concepts and ideas from current research in higher education, giving them fresh themes for their project work and enabling more students to reach the highest grades. Contemporary case studies, suggestions for imaginative projects, pacy design and full colour illustrations will guarantee their appeal to the 16-19 age group.

Covering areas that tend to be excluded from conventional 16-19 texts, the titles in this new series will also bridge the gap between school and university geography and prepare your students for the type of work they will encounter during their university studies. Changing Geography aims to take post-16 geography right into the mainstream of geographical thinking.

Because the countryside means different things to different people, this book examines the countryside, with the emphasis placed on 'ways of seeing it'. By using practical activities your students can investigate the countryside as a place of work, a place in which to play, a place in which to live and a place to visit.

Countryside conflicts is designed to help your students develop an understanding of the, often conflicting, influences that shape the countryside, both literally and metaphorically.
