This market-leading textbook has undergone a significant change: the overall organization has shifted from developed/underdeveloped countries to a more practical format which focuses on the enormous regional and social disparities in individual countries within the realm. The text has been streamlined and the chapters are organized into two distinct parts: Defining the Realm (physical, historical, and cultural background) and Regions of the Realm (more specific descriptions of each region). Contains increased emphasis on urban geography, reflected in a new segment entitled Among the Realm's Great Cities. As in previous editions, this one includes outstanding illustrative materials and the most up-to-date nomenclature and maps.From the Back Cover:
Regions, as this comprehensive Geography text is generally known, combines a broad overview of the discipline of Geography with a penetrating assessment of developments in our fast-changing world. Geography links the study of human societies and their natural-environmental settings through a revealing, spatial approach, aided in this book by a unique series of thematic maps at various levels of scale. Thus the focus shifts seamlessly from the global to the regional to the local, yielding insights into the forces that shape the human mosiac of our planet.
From glaciation to globalization, desertification to devolution, Mexico to Madagascar, Regions puts processes and places in spatial context. Inside this cover lies an information highway to geographic literacy, a key to understanding the global map.
