Overview

More than any other text for the course, Pulsipher's World Regional Geography (WRG) shows students how individuals are affected by, and respond to, economic, social, and political forces at all levels of scale: global, regional, subregional, local.  It offers a vivid and inclusive picture of people in a globalizing world—men, women, children, both mainstream and marginalized citizens—not as seen from a Western perspective, but as they see themselves. The core topics of physical, economic, cultural, and political geography are examined from a contemporary perspective, based on authoritative insights from the most recent geographic theory.
