The Population of the UK free pdf This new edition of The Population of the UK explains how geography - in the widest sense - makes a difference to life outcomes. Fully revised and updated, and now printed in four color, the text explains differences in key socio-economic variables - like education, health, and work - that map the UK's inequalities and affect everyone's lives. Written for undergraduate students in all social science disciplines, this unique text presents a social geography and landscape of the UK which is distinctive in three ways: * It contains over 100 maps which show a social landscape and are drawn in size in proportion to the numbers of people being depicted, so representing the human geography of the UK.* It visualizes quantitative evidence. The latest statistics from numerous sources reveal the many aspects of the underlying geographical structure of society in the UK.* It relates geographies of identity to geographies of inequality, mortality, work and settlement to show how the UK fits in to a global picture of human geography. Highly visual - with maps and figures on every page, using the most up to date cartographic techniques - organized in short thematic chapters, The Population of the UK explains the nuts and bolts of UK population in comparative context. Fully revised and expanded, in four-color and in a large format, The Population of the UK includes 100 figures and a fully functioning web-site with PowerPoint slides- as well as practical exercises, and clear summaries in tables and specially drawn maps.
