WIN: You Are Here by Nicholas Crane!

WIN: You Are Here by Nicholas Crane!
12 Oct

‘We all have a world view. It is one of the things that makes us human. Wherever we come from, whoever we are, we all have to engage with people, places and our environment. Geography is a way of thinking’ – Nicholas Crane

In You Are Here, former RGS-IBG president and one of Britain’s foremost geographers, Nicholas Crane, distills a lifetime of work to make the case for geography’s importance to the world as we enter ever-more uncertain times. In his previous title, Crane took us on an epic journey to reveal the origins of our home nation. This time round, he’s covering the entire world in an accessible, engaging manner that will leave you more convinced than ever that we have entered a ‘Golden Age of Geography’.
