"Human geography or anthropogeography is the branch of geography that is associated and deals with humans and their relationships with communities, cultures, economies, and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across locations. It analyzes patterns of human social interaction, their interactions with the environment, and their spatial interdependencies by application of qualitative and quantitative research methods."

Introduction to a book titled "Human Geography":
"Welcome to Human Geography! If you are interested in how humans interact with the environment and how human systems are geographically distributed over space, then you’ve found your place."
The first five paragraphs of Chapter One of a book titled "The Western World: Daily Readings on Geography":
"This course is Geography of the Western World. So, what is the Western World?
This course is a Regional Geography course. When geographers create regions, they strive to incorporate as many similarities as possible in order to develop a recognizable region, while keeping out differences. So, what are the similarities of the Western World?
We could begin with the word “Western.” Would this include every place that is west of the zero line – 0° longitude westward to 180° longitude? This zero mark is the prime meridian that passes through Greenwich, England. Thus, we would include Great Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, (Norway’s Svalbard Islands), and Andorra from Europe, plus Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Cote D’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, the Gambia, Cape Verde, and Senegal in Africa. All of the Americas are included. The 180° longitude line intersects the easternmost corner of Russia. Going westward to that line would cover much of the Pacific Ocean and a number of islands up to Fiji. Correctly used, all of this 0°-180° is the Western Hemisphere; however, often this hemispherical reference is wrongly shortened to mean the Americas.
Anyway, is that set of countries what we mean by the Western World? No.
Sometimes one of the shared characteristics is a feature of the physical landscape. Since the Western World would seem to consist of half of the world, while the Eastern World is the other half, this is a huge array of lands that would have to share common features. Indeed, the Western World has many different landscapes, as does the Eastern World. Europe is known for islands, peninsulas, and mountains, but not deserts. South America has the Andes Mountains, the Amazon Rainforest, and the world’s driest desert (Atacama). North America has a full array of landscapes, even tundra in Canada and Alaska. Australia is famed for its dry Outback. Russia is enormous and leads the world in coniferous forest and in permafrost. Is there some way to identify the typical landscape of the Western World? No."
