From the Back Cover:

Places fascinate geographers. In this book, authors Les Rowntree, Martin Lewis, Marie Price, and William Wyckoff offer a unique interpretation of world regional geography that is deeply appreciative of global diversity, while at the same time emphasizing those aspects of modern life that link the world together. The four photos on the front cover illustrate this approach by highlighting both local diversity and global connectedness.

  • Globalization Protest in Washington, DC: Many people are concerned about globalization's effects on the environment, national sovereignty, and human rights. This photograph shows the Philippine Solidarity Group from Toronto, Canada protesting in Washington, DC in the United States—which in itself is a statement about globalization. Protests such as these illustrate that while globalization may not always be positive, it has become a pervasive force in the world. Read about globalization as a concept in chapter 1.
  • Singapore: Singapore's landscape juxtaposes a skyline of modern high-rise buildings with the historical Colonial district architecture in the foreground. Foreign Policy magazine recently listed Singapore as the word's most global country. Read about Singapore in chapter 13, Southeast Asia.
  • The Islamic Landscape: Iranian mullahs discuss the religious questions of the day beneath the minarets of the Moussavi Mosque in Qom. Islam has left a widespread mark on Southwest Asia's cultural landscapes. Learn more about Islamic architecture in chapter 7, Southwest Asia and North Africa.
  • Kerala: Evidence of globalization is widespread in Kerala, India. Here one sees a rural family with a large satellite dish; the family earns a few dollars a week by renting out viewing time to villagers on its globally linked television set. Learn more about Kerala by taking the Author Field Trip featured on the CD-ROM that accompanies your book.

About the Author:

Les Rowntree is a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, where he researches and writes about environmental issues. This career change comes after three decades of teaching both Geography and Environmental Studies at San Jose State University in California. As an environmental geographer, Dr. Rowntree’s interests focus on international environmental issues, biodiversity conservation, and human-caused global change. He sees world regional geography as a way to engage and inform students by giving them the conceptual tools needed to critically assess global issues. Dr. Rowntree has done research in Iceland, Alaska, Morocco, Mexico, Australia, and Europe, as well as in his native California. Current writing projects include a book on the natural history of California’s coast, as well as textbooks in geography and environmental science.

Dr. Lewis has traveled extensively in East, South, and Southeast Asia. His current research focuses on the geographical dimensions of globalization. In April 2009 Dr. Lewis was recognized by Time Magazine, as a favorite lecturer.

She is a non-resident fellow of the Migration Policy Institute, a non-partisan think tank that focuses on immigration.

Her publications include the co-edited book, Migrants to the Metropolis: The Rise of Immigrant Gateway Cities (2008, Syracuse University Press) and numerous academic articles and book chapters.
