Overview

The Fourth Edition of World Regions in Global Context retains its strong global sensibility and its emphasis on current concerns, with models of interdependent development, spatial and social inequality, and questions of spatial justice. This revision is more user-friendly in the organization of the material in each chapter, with greater consistency among regional chapters in terms of the critical processes that shape regions. The authors maintain that regions are the outcomes of a set of world-spanning systems. Therefore, each regional chapter stresses the global systems of connection that drive unique regional processes, thus making regions different. By studying regions, students not only learn the critical elements of different places, but also come to understand the fundamental processes that drive change.

  World Regions in Global Context; Europe; The Russian Federation, Central Asia, and the Transcaucasus; Middle East and North Africa; Sub-Saharan Africa; The United States and Canada; Latin America; East Asia; South Asia; Southeast Asia; Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.

A useful reference for anyone interested in learning more about world regional geography.
