    An Integrative Approach to Human Geography is a compendium of geographic topics that attempts to give readers an understanding of common themes in social science literature that concerns geographers. Combining essays selected from geographers and non-geographers, this anthology illustrates the presence of geography in texts and manuscripts that people often label as non-geographic. This approach helps social science students identify geography where it is often believed to be absent, and it encourages non-geographers to realize that they can contribute their talents to the richness of geographic knowledge.

    Instead of following a normative approach, An Integrative Approach to Human Geography encourages those outside the discipline to see the "geographic" within their own fields of expertise. This text highlights a coalescence in the social sciences under the banner of geographic literacy.
