Book information sheet

  1. 1. Details ISBN: 978-1-913019-15-0 Paperback | 138mm x 216mm | 208 pp RRP: £12.99 London Publishing Partnership Publication Date: October 20, 2020 Description Studying any subject at degree level is an investment in the future that involves significant cost. Now more than ever, students and their parents need to weigh up the potential benefits of university courses. That’s where the Why Study series comes in. This series of books, aimed at students, parents and teachers, explains in practical terms the range and scope of an academic subject at university level and where it can lead in terms of careers or further study. Each book sets out to enthuse the reader about its subject and answer the crucial questions that a college prospectus does not. Praise Geography is the big-picture subject for our times. It encompasses subjects ranging from the microscopic – how soils form, and how those soils can be protected and managed well to grow food, for example – through to things as large-scale as the future trajectory of megacities and the threat of ever more warming of the planet. Alan Parkinson’s guide clearly and carefully explains why geography is worthy of study, at GCSE, at A level and at university. It is bang up to date. Students, their teachers and parents are all likely to find it essential reading. Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography, University of Oxford Why Study Geography? is an inspiring guide that any potential geography student should read, whether they are considering their GCSE or sixth-form choices, contemplating their UCAS application, or seeking to understand the broader value of geography within the world of work. Packed with real-life case studies and extension activities, this book demonstrates the richly diverse nature of geography and gives students the tools they need to help them make well-informed decisions that will serve to shape their future. This is a must-read for any budding geographer, and for teachers, careers advisors and parents/guardians wishing to offer their guidance and support. Dr Claire E. Evans, geography teacher and Head of Careers & UCAS, Bloxham School If you want the low-down on studying geography today – where and how it happens, what it means, and where it might take you – this book is the one-stop shop for all you need to know from one of the best-informed working geographers around. Carl Lee, associate lecturer at The University of Sheffield International School and co-author of Geography (Profile Books, 2016) A thoroughly researched and convincing examination of the reasons why students should study geography beyond GCSE and A level. An essential ‘guide at the side’ for both teachers and students. Every geography department should have a copy.
