Via approximately 80 entries or "mini-chapters," the SAGE 21st Century Reference Series volumes on geography will highlight the most important topics, issues, questions, and debates any student obtaining a degree in this field ought to have mastered for effectiveness in the 21st century. The purpose is to provide undergraduate majors with an authoritative reference source that will serve their research needs with more detailed information than encyclopedia entries but not so much jargon, detail, or density as a journal article or a research handbook chapter.

Features & Benefits:

  • Curricular-driven to provide students with initial footholds on topics of interest in writing research term papers, in preparing for GREs, in consulting to determine directions to take in pursuing a senior thesis, graduate degree, etc.
  • Comprehensive to offer full coverage of major subthemes and subfields within the discipline of geography, including regional geography, physical geography, global change, human and cultural geography, economic geography and locational analysis, political geography, geospatial technology, cartography, spatial thinking, research methodology, geographical education, and more.
  • Uniform in chapter structure to make it easy for students to locate key information, with a more-or-less common chapter format of Introduction, Theory, Methods, Applications, Comparison, Future Directions, Summary, Bibliography & Suggestions for Further Reading, and Cross References.
  • Available in print and electronic formats to provide students with convenient, easy access.

About the Author:

Joseph Stoltman (Ph.D., University of Georgia) is editor of Research in Geographic Education and co-editor of International Research in Geography & Environmental Education.  He was a member of the design and development team and evaluator for Activities and Readings in the Geography of the United States (ARGUS) and Activities and Resources for the Geography of the World (ARGWorld), both NSF-supported projects of the Association of American Geographers.  His current research includes the analysis and mapping of the impact of content standards and statewide assessment on geography inclusion and student geography achievement in Michigan.  He recently concluded service activities as President of the Board of the Social Science Education Consortium and as a Member of the Commission on Geographic Education of the International Geographical Union.  He serves on several standing committees of the National Council for Geographic Education, including the nominations and honors committees.  He also serves as co-coordinator of the Michigan Geographic Alliance, which prides itself with having made both qualitatively and quantitatively significant differences in the level of geography instruction in both public and private schools in the State.  In addition, he has been a development team member for Global Voyager, an eleven-program video series on world geography produced by the Agency for Instructional Technology, Bloomington, Indiana.  At Western Michigan University since 1971, he directs the Master of Arts in Teaching Geography degree program and holds a joint appointment as a faculty member in the Mallinson Institute for Science Education.  He serves as Ph.D. dissertation adviser for students in earth science education as well as in the College of Education.  The AAG, East Lakes AAG, IGU, and NCGE have all awarded honors to him for his scholarly and professional work in geographic education.  He is a Fellow of the Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education.

Review:

"Aimed at undergraduates, the writing is less technical and more accessible to nonspecialists than in some books on the subject. Any of the chapters would serve as an excellent introduction to a given topic."-- (01/01/2013)
