A Geography of Islands gives a comprehensive survey of 'islandness' and its defining features. Steve Royle has visited and studied 312 islands in 49 countries in all the worlds oceans. It is full of up to date global case studies, from Okinawa to Inishboffin, and Hawaii to Crete. In the final chapter, all the themes are brought together in a case study of the Atlantic island of St Helena. It is well illustrated with the authors own photographs and maps. This book will appeal to those studying islands as well as those with an interest in the topic, particularly those engaged in dealing with small island economies.
