Overview

Filled with the rich diversity of human life, yet exceptionally concise, World Regional Geography Concepts humanizes geographic issues by representing the daily lives of women, men, and children in the various regions of the globe. As in their more comprehensive text, World Regional Geography, Lydia and Alex Pulsipher make global patterns of trade and consumption meaningful for students by showing how these patterns affect environments and people at the local level. And at around 450
pages, it remains the ideal length for covering all of the world’s regions in one semester.

The new edition offers more streamlined and consistent chapter structure, a wealth of new information and images, and its own dedicated version of LaunchPad, W.H. Freeman’s new online course space featuring a fully integrated e-Book, LearningCurve adaptive quizzing, a rich collection of student media resources, and easy setup, assessment, and course management options for instructors. To order this book packaged with LaunchPad please order package isbn 978-1-319-01720-0.

Meet the Author

Lydia Mihelic Pulsipher is a cultural-historical geographer who studies the landscapes of ordinary people through the lens of geography. She has contributed to several geography-related exhibits at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., including "Seeds of Change," which featured her research in the eastern Caribbean on human adaptation to the Neo-troics in the post-Columbian period, including the present. She and her graduate students have also looked at cultural geography and national/ethnic identity issues in the new Central European members of the European Union, and at the impact of tourism development on traditional landscapes in these countries. In January, 2009, Dr. Pulsipher was awarded the Preston E. James Eminent Latin Americanist Career Award, by the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers, for work on the cultural and environmental geography of the Eastern Caribbean and Latin America, and public outreach through collaborations with the Smithsonian Institution and the Seeds of Change exhibit.
 
Alex A. Pulsipher is an independent scholar in Knoxville, TN, focusing on urban development, sustainability, and global environmental change.  In the early 1990s, Alex spent some time in South Asia working for a development research center and then went on to do an undergraduate thesis on the history of Hindu nationalism at Wesleyan University.  Beginning in 1995, Alex worked full time on the research and writing of the first edition of World Regional Geography.  In 1999 and 2000, he traveled to South America, Southeast Asia, and South Asia, where he collected information for the second edition of World Regional Geography and for the website.  In 2000 and 2001, he returned to writing material and designing maps for the second edition.  In 2010, he earned a masters degree in Geography from Clark University, where he studied the diffusion of green technologies in the context of environmental change.
