When I went in search of a precise definition, I realised that there were many contrasting views on geography but the one view that reoccurred was that no individual was 100% positive that their definition was correct. "The concept and scope of geography have undergone considerable change, and it is highly unlikely that any definition would satisfy everyone", (Monkhouse, ). This difficulty in finding a clear definition is emphasised by the Oxford Dictionary of Geography which states "The discipline of geography has many interpretations"( ), and Brewer concurs with thie assessment commenting that "Geography is a subject which defies concise definition", (1973).
