Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The multi-layered, complex geography that characterizes the diverse region of North America has been forged by the interaction between man, past and present, and the physical environmental. This book captures the essence of such human and physical diversity in a collection of edited essays; drawing upon themes and case studies to provide a holistic approach to the geography of Canada and the United States. Split into a number of thematic sections, North America explores the physical and biotic milieus; people and culture; the North American economy; and the urban scene. It then looks in depth at a series of "regional vignettes": a selection of detailed snapshots of cities and regions, constructing a geographical mosaic from which to illustrate the continent's richness. This comprehensive and vibrant account concludes with an assessment of North America's role in the wider world.

Description:

Includes bibliographic references (p. 317-332) and index.
