The Canadian edition of Human Geography: Landscapes of Human Activities retains the goals and best features of the US edition, seeking to introduce readers to the scope and excitement of human geography, and its relevance in their daily lives and roles as informed citizens. This book was written to convey the richness and breadth of human geography and to give insight into the nature and intellectual challenges of the field of geography itself. The text’s treatment of concepts and international case studies provides a very sound foundation from which to adapt the book to the Canadian market, covering the breadth of Geography with strong pedagogical features. Two new boxes added to the Canadian edition, and perhaps the most distinctive features among its competitors, are the “Want to Know More” and “Gender” boxes integrated throughout the book, covering gender roles in society and culture. These, along with existing features that have been well-reviewed by users of the US edition, make this text an outstanding tool for Canadian instructors and students.
