In response to the changing facts of human geography and to changing understandings of those facts, this edition is changed from the fifth edition in three substantive ways. First, there is much new content, most notably the addition of two more chapters on aspects of urban geography. Second, there is an increased emphasis on providing information for students in easily readable ways, especially though the addition of 53 new Figures, 26 new Tables, 35 new Boxes, and 45 new Glossary items. Third, much of the detailed factual content in this sixth edition is new.

"This is my favourite introductory human geography textbook. . . . This text provides a solid foundation for intro human geography. It introduces the key vocabulary in an accessible way and draws in a variety of current research in a way that makes geography both interesting and approachable."
--Patricia Fitzpatrick, University of Winnipeg
"Most other texts are American-focused or Canadian adaptations of American texts. Of the global texts, Norton and Mercier is the best at a comprehensive treatment of human geography."
--Brent Doberstein, University of Waterloo
