Human Geography: Places and Regions in Global Context (5TH 10 - Old Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Knox/Marston’s contemporary approach fosters awareness of current issues and developing trends from a geographic perspective. The authors give meaning to people and places by integrating compelling local, regional, and global viewpoints. By giving readers access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories – with a strong foundation in the fundamentals – this book not only builds knowledge about places and regions, but fosters a deeper understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world. A global framework promotes a stronger connection between topical and regional material by emphasizing how their processes are linked (e.g., technological innovation and the varying ways technology is adopted and modified by people and places). The book's changing world perspective reflects many trends in the discipline such as the globalization of industry, the upwelling of ethnic regionalisms on the heels of decolonization and new state formation, and the trend toward transnational political and economic organizations.

Geography Matters; The Changing Global Context; Geographies of Population; Nature and Society; Cultural Geographies; Interpreting Places and Landscapes; The Geography of Economic Development; Agriculture and Food Production; The Politics of Territory and Space; Urbanization; City Spaces: Urban Structure; Future Geographies.
