Johannes Gabriel Granö's career as a geographer spanned the first half of the twentieth century. In the course of his explorations in Central Asia (where his father had served as Lutheran pastor to Siberia's Finnish colony) Granö initially specialized in geomorphology, a highly fashionable branch of science at that time, and one regarded by many as the true calling of the geographer. It was not long, however, before theoretical themes began to emerge in Granö's work. In the 1920s he began to develop a highly original methodology of landscape geography, based on the idea that the real object of geographical research should be the environment as perceived by the senses and regions constructed on the basis of these perceptions. It was from this starting point that he created the doctrine he called "pure geography." First published in German (1929) and then in his native Finnish (1930), Granö's Pure Geography is regarded by many geographers as one of the classic works in the field. Long out of print, this widely acclaimed classic is now available for the first time in English translation
