As with previous editions, the Sixth Edition features outstanding illustrative material and a full-color cartographic program but also incorporates four major chapter revisions, substantial updating and new chapter on opening maps.

Specifics for each region are also discussed such as changing natural environment; history, settlement, population, politics, economics and their impact; industrialization and urbanization; environmental hazards and much more.
