- Basing the volume on archival materials, Geoffrey Martin explains not only what American geographers did, but also why they chose the paths they took. The letters upon which the volume relies enable Martin to enter the minds of our predecessors in ways that histories based on secondary sources cannot. By tracing interpersonal connections among domestic geographers, and with overseas colleagues (especially in Germany and France), Martin sheds new light on the intellectual and structural foundations of American geography.
