Winner in its third edition of the TEXTY award for books in social sciences, this up-to-the-minute revision continues to affirm that what happens at places depends increasingly on what happens among places, and mapped patterns can be understood only if we understand the patterns of movement that create and continuously rearrange them. Introduces the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of geography. Presents a wide range of positions currently debated about provocative current issues. Emphasizes both scientific and humanistic analytical skills, and weaves the theme of human-environmental interaction throughout. A useful, comprehensive reference for anyone interested in using geography to understand current events.

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.From the Back Cover:
