Overview

By offering access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories in human geography – accompanied by a strong foundation in the fundamentals – this handbook builds knowledge about places and regions as well as a deeper understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world.

Fosters awareness of current issues from a geographic perspective, reflecting developing trends such as the globalization of industry; the upwelling of ethnic regionalisms on the heels of decolonization and new state formation, and the emerging trend toward transnational political and economic organizations. Covers key issues of human geography such as global security, trade in commodities, cultural dimensions of globalization, youth culture, economic aid and outsourcing, bio-terrorism, and more. Offers a rich and diverse cartographic program with hundreds of maps that help reveal the important spatial elements inherent to human geography.

For those interested in learning more about human geography.
