What books would be ideal to pre-read for Year 1 Geography?
Hi @HuntaElite,

Pre-reading in preparation for your first year studying your Geography degree, I would recommend reading Human Geography: A Concise Introduction by Mark Boyle. Or if you want a book which is orientated around Physical Geography, I would recommend reading Earth Portrait of a Planet: Sixth edition Stephen Marshak.

A couple of books which I would recommend for a more general read include Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing Out of Catastrophe by Antony Loewenstein. In my opinion, it was an eye-opening book demonstrating the impact of unequal human development on natural disaster fatalities and damage.

Another personal favourite- Coasts in Crisis: A Global Challenge by Gary Griggs. I have always been fascinated by Coasts, and my A Level Geography teacher recommended it, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Best Wishes,

Sam Townsend | BSc(Hons) Geography Student at The University Of Huddersfield
