London and New York: Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 1999. - 528 p.Providing an integrated survey of how the geography of the United Kingdom has changed through the 1990s, this book offers an understanding of the social, economic, political and physical forces bringing about change. It captures the changing geography of the country at a time of particular interest, with the 1990s seeing not only a change in government but also radical shifts in policies in many areas. All aspects of the social, economic, political and physical geography of the United Kingdom are covered. The basic primary use of the resources afforded by the physical environment are assessed through chapters on water, energy and bulk resources. The book then proceeds to address the geographies of manufacturing and service sectors, before considering the social issues arising, and the political frameworks within which the social, economic and physical processes moulding the geography of the country operate. The relationships between the people of the United Kingdom and their environment are considered further in chapters addressing topics such as physical hazards, pollution, conservation and climatic change. The book focuses on changes throughout the 1990s, although the final chapters look towards possible changes in the future.
