Man, A Geomorphological Agent: An Introduction to Anthropogic Geomorphology



Many human activities alter surrounding landforms. In Man, A Geomorphological Agent,, Dov Nir systematically evaluates the role of people as an integral portion of the total geomorphological system. His expressed purpose is to develop the theme of “anthropic geomorphology” and to elucidate its position in the broader field of cultural geography. In this task Nir is generally successful, but the overall usefulness of the resulting book is limited.
