Ideas in Profile: Small Introductions to Big TopicsGeography gives shape to our innate curiosity; cartography is older than writing.

Channelling our twin urges to explore and understand, geographers uncover the hidden connections of human existence, from infant mortality in inner cities to the decision-makers who fly overhead in executive jets, from natural disasters to over-use of fossil fuels. In this incisive introduction to the subject, Danny Dorling and Carl Lee reveal geography as a science which tackles all of the biggest issues that face us today, from globalisation to equality, from sustainability to population growth, from climate change to changing technology - and the complex interactions between them all.

Illustrated by a series of award-winning maps created by Benjamin D.

Hennig, this is a book for anyone who wants to know more about why our world is the way it is today, and where it might be heading next.
