However, there are other kinds of geographies too and human geography is just one of them. This branch deals with not just what the patterns on earth are like but also how they affect human beings. |

There are also chapters on how space is organised on political terms, usage of land for agricultural purposes as well as for cities. An entire section has been devoted to industrialization as well as economic development.
