Books for background readingWatch
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.
