Placing Human Geography: Sweden through Time and Space is the title for the yearbook YMER of 2010. Its articles are written by leading scholars in human geography and covers time periods ranging from prehistory to present day with a focus on human civilization and its impacts in Sweden. Both Swedish urban and rural spaces are described and discussed.

The different societal structures and processes ongoing in Sweden are also reflected within the international human geography literature and debates.
