9780060434588: The Human Mosaic: A Thematic Introduction to Cultural Geography

Carrying forward the legacy of original author Terry Jordan-Bychkov, Mona Domosh and new coauthors Roderick Neumann and Patricia Price offer this thoroughly updated new edition of the acclaimed introduction to the cultural geography of the world today.  The result is a text that maintains its original distinctive style while addressing contemporary issues and situations that students care about, most importantly, the continuing phenomenon of globalization.
 
The Thematic Approach of The Human Mosaic
The Human Mosaic introduces five themes in the opening chapter--culture region, cultural diffusion, cultural ecology, cultural interaction, and cultural landscape--then uses those themes as a framework for the topical chapters that follow. Each theme is applied to a variety of geographical topics: demography, agriculture, the city, religion, language, ethnicity, politics, industry, folk and popular culture. Through this organization, students are able to relate to the most important aspects of cultural geography at every point in the text.
