Human Geography

Human Geography, the journal, is broadly conceived to cover topics ranging from geopolitics, through cultural and economic issues, to political ecology. The journal consciously favors political as well as theoretically-based articles from various left positions that definitely include socialism. Additionally, the wide range of urgent social and political issues thrown up by capitalist globalization is not being fully addressed. Some of the most basic issues (like global finance capitalism and the environmental crises) are hardly mentioned in the existing journals. Hence, we favor a new, more extensive and politically inclusive journal of broadly, but very politically, conceived Human Geography.
