9780130174062: Introduction to Geography: People, Places and Environment

I ntroduction to Geography: People, Places, & Environment, Fifth Edition introduces the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of the discipline of geography. The authors emphasize that what happens in places depends increasingly on what happens among places—and that mapped patterns can be understood only by recognizing the movement that creates and continuously rearranges them. The text focuses on the integration of various aspects of geographic processes and systems by discussing what happens in one set of geographic processes and how that affects others. For example, what happens in economic systems affects environmental conditions; what happens to climate affects political dynamics.

This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs 35% less than a new textbook.

Product Description:

Introduction to Geography: People, Places, & Environment, Fifth Edition emphasizes that what happens in places depends increasingly on what happens among places-and that mapped patterns can be understood only by recognizing the movement that creates and continuously rearranges them. The authors emphasize the integration of various aspects of geographic processes and systems by discussing what happens in one set of geographic processes and how that affects others. For example, what happens in economic systems affects environmental conditions; what happens to climate affects political dynamics. In this text, the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of the discipline of geography are introduced.

From the Back Cover:

Introduction to Geography, Second Edition is built around three themes: the belief in the interrelationship between humans and their natural environment; the philosophy that many basic principles of human geography can be studied and demonstrated locally; and the idea that geography is dynamic. From this perspective, Bergman and Renwick give students the tools they need to understand current events, decide where to live, seek or build a career, and inform their own political opinions. The text also embraces contemporary issues in geography such as environmental change and adaptation, and gender justice.
