Economic and Social Geography reviews developments in the study of economic and social geography and brings together in a single volume work which is dispersed in many specialist textbooks. An attempt has been made to achieve a balance between oversimplification and over-elaboration, and to present essential concepts in a clear, concise manner. The book contains 25 chapters organized into five parts. Part One deals with the study of economic and social geography, including approaches to the study of human geography and environmental perception and behavior. Part Two on population geography covers topics such as population geography, population change, and population growth. Part Three on economic geography includes discussions of transportation, agriculture, and mineral resources. Part Four on settlement geography examines urbanization, the internal structure of towns and cities, and rural settlement. Part Five is devoted to urban and rural planning, problems of economic development, and resources. This book, together with its companion volume, Physical Geography Made Simple, should be of value to a variety of people. First, to those who are coming to academic geography for the first time, especially to those studying for GCE Advanced Level or ONC/OND examinations. It should also provide a concise introduction to first-year courses in further and higher education, including degree courses with a geography component, HNC/HND, and Certificate in Education courses.

Economic History: Made Simple traces Great Britain's economic history starting from about 1760 onwards. It also assesses the impact of technological change on people's lives. The book is organized into four sections covering different periods. Section I deals with emergence of the first industrial nation from 1760-1830. Section II focuses on the 1830-1914 period, when Britain was undergoing the transition from being a primarily agricultural and commercial economy into the first modern industrial state in the world. Section III discusses the 1914-39 period, which saw the First World War, followed by a boom lasting until 1920 and afterwards a depression of considerable duration. Section IV discusses Britain's economic and social development since 1939, covering topics such as the impact of the Second World War, and the post-war social, economic, and industrial policies. This book should be useful to any students of economics who wish to explore the realities of economic life in historical perspective. It will also provide sound background reference for more elementary studies as well as being of value to readers seeking a greater understanding of the world in which they live.

Public Sector Economics: Made Simple introduces the reader, step by step, clearly and methodically, to the concepts and principles of public sector economics. The functions and finance of central government, local authorities, and nationalized industries are examined within the framework of a national economy. Examples are given largely from the British economy but international comparisons are made. A large number of tables and diagrams are also provided so as to relate the theory to the real world. Comprised of 21 chapters, this book discusses the theory and practice of public finance, with emphasis on public expenditure, taxation, and the national debt. Fiscal policy with its economic, social, and political objectives is also considered and viewed in relation to monetary policy and prices and incomes policy. After an overview of economic systems and models, the book focuses on allocation of resources and provision of public goods; public expenditure in Britain; the theory of taxation and the tax system; taxes on income, profits, consumption, and capital; and taxable capacity, incidence of taxation, and the tax burden. Fiscal policy is analyzed in relation to economic growth, standard of living, and distribution of income and wealth. This monograph is intended for economists and students taking economics-related courses.
