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.
