Abstract

The book examines the history and geography of science and the science of geography in Britain and the British Empire. It makes an inter-disciplinary contribution to the history and geography of scientific knowledge and to the civic history of scholarly geography. Attention is paid to the workings of the British Association, to geography as a developing subject in Britain and overseas, and to connections between education and citizenship in a period of ‘crisis’ both for geography and the sciences between the two world wars. - (HC)
