Description: This book is the first detailed study of the politics of British geography books and of related forms of geographical knowledge in the period from 1650 to 1850. It is a contribution to the intellectual history of geographical knowledge in particular and of Britain more generally. The definition and role of geography in a humanist structure of knowledge are examined, as are the audience for and print culture of geography before its formalization as a discipline in the late 19th century. In all these respects, geography is shown to have been tied to political discourse.
