For introductory courses in Human or Cultural Geography found in Geography, Anthropology, or Social Science departments.  “Human Geography 4/C/E” builds knowledge about places and regions and an understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world. 

 

The fourth edition intreprets these aims from a Canadian perspective by showing the relevance of a geographical imagination constitued in Canadian terms, and how a clearer understanding of geography is essential to comprehend not only the effects of global change, but also this country's role in the world.

About the Author:

Dr. Michael Imort received his Ph.D. from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.  Ever the geographer, he took the long way to get there, studying at Brock, York, Waterloo, and Freiburg, Germany, with stints in the Arctic, Hawaii, Mali, and Zaire (now DRC), and a teaching appointment in an English castle - not to mention the days when he worked as a lumberjack or ran a bookstore.  When the time came to get serious, he joined the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University, where he currently is the Associate Dean of Arts.  Originally trained as a forest scientist with an interest in fire ecology, he soon became interested in the human side of environmental problems.  Today his research interests include environmental thought and the many ways in which representations of landscape are used and abused for political purposes.

 

Dr. Alan Nash received his Ph.D. at Cambridge University and is currently an associate professor at Concordia University.  His primary area of research is in population geography, paying particular interest to the implications of Canadian public policy on immigration, refugee status, and population change.  He has taught and held research positions at a number of Canadian universities.
