From the Back Cover:

Using the story of the rise and faltering of the West as its backdrop, this book provides for beginning students a clear and concise introduction to Human Geography, including its key concepts, seminal thinkers and their theories, contemporary debates, and celebrated case studies. 

Mark Boyle, a respected academic with more than 20 years’ of experience researching and teaching the subject, explores the significance of the ascendance and degeneration of the West since the fifteenth century in the shaping of the key demographic, environmental, social, economic, political, and cultural processes active in the world today. He documents important thinkers, debates, and theories in an accessible manner, with a focus on discerning the inherent Western bias in these ideas. Also incorporated are case studies examining the ways in which geographical processes operate in non-Western societies, including those in Asia, the Middle East, and South America. 

The book is armed with array of pedagogical resources including learning objectives, essay questions, key ideas, and a glossary. A website at www.wiley.com/go/boyle (available on publication) includes chapter-by-chapter PowerPoint slides for instructors, alongside time-saving quizzes, questions, resources, and podcasts for students.
