An Historical Geography of Europe represents the first multi-authored comprehensive study on the subject. It provides the reader with an analytical and explanatory account of European historical geography from classical times to the modern period, including the vast changes to landscape, settlements, population, and in political and cultural structures and character that have taken place since 1500. The book takes account of the vast volume of relevant research and literature that has been published over the past two or three decades, in order to achieve a unique coverage and synthesis of this very broad range of evidence and opinion, and has tried to engage with many of the main themes and debates to give a clear indication of changing ideas and interpretations of the subject. This book brings together British and European authors from a number of disciplines who have considerable distinction in the various fields of historical geography and related fields, including a significant number who have already written on the wider problem of European historical geography. It is amply illustrated with maps and diagrams to present many of the issues in a visual form.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The sixteen chapters of this compilation provide an up-to-date and extensive review of the theme in the context of human-environment interactions. This deep study will be of interest to geographers, historians economists and environmentalists. * K. M. Proos, International Journal of Environmental Studies 2000 Vol.57 *
The authors and editors are, in general, to be recommended in constituting what should be a valuable addition to the historiography of works upon the historical geography of Europe. The chapters are without exception well written... depth and range of scholarship on display here. * Charles W.J. Withers, Landscape History *
