Overview

FUNDAMENTALS OF WORLD REGIONAL GEOGRAPHY is specifically designed for the one-semester or one-quarter course. The text focuses on each region as a whole, emphasizing their roles in the world domain, while still exploring the critical subregional issues that make up each region's unique identity. Following two introductory chapters that provide the basic concepts, tools, and vocabulary for the world regional chapter, the remaining chapters of the text each focus on one of the eight world regions, describing the historical, cultural, economic, political, and physical aspects that create regional unity, give them personality, and make them newsworthy. This big picture approach, perfect for one-semester courses, places each region in a more global perspective, encouraging students to develop their own worldview. Unlike other brief world regional geography texts, however, FUNDAMENTALS OF WORLD REGIONAL GEOGRAPHY does not ignore or downplay subregional issues. The final section of each regional chapter looks at numerous specific issues and landscapes within the region that have broad implications for the rest of the region as a whole and how those issues impact other global regions. The text is fully integrated with World Regional GeographyNow?, the first assessment-driven and student-centered online learning solution created specifically for this course. World Regional GeographyNow? uses a series of chapter-specific diagnostic tests to build a personalized learning plan for each student, allowing students to focus their study time on specific areas of weaknesses. Each personalized learning plan directs students to specific chapter sections and concept-driven multimedia tutorials designed to maximize their study time and augment their understanding.
