Publisher Comments:

This unique study of world regional geography covers the world’s regions by 11 experts in their respective fields who are intimately familiar with their material through research, fieldwork, and teaching. Employs the central theme of human development to present a vital, issues-oriented overview of each topic. Provides a deeper understanding of the character of the world's peoples than the more traditional descriptive approach. Revises and expands coverage of Russia and Central Eurasia. Adds a wealth of new material, including New Orleans (reflecting the serious problems of a densely settled and industrialized delta region when faced with a natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina magnitude); the European Union and its significance for developmental integration; environmental problems in desert cities; and much more. A useful reference for educators or anyone who needs to increase their knowledge of  regional geography.

Synopsis:

Pulling from an impressive team of ten authors, each chapter in this book has been authored by an expert in the region to provide the utmost accuracy and relevancy. World Regional Geography, 10/e explores the character of the world’s people, with a central theme of human development, for an issues-oriented overview of each region. An emphasis on subregions (places within regions) enables readers to explore specific locales. An economic development themeoffers a more conceptual treatment than the traditional coverage of this topic.

Basic Concepts and Ideas; The United States and Canada; Latin America and the Caribbean; Europe; Northern Eurasia; Central Asia and Afghanistan; The Middle East and North Africa; Africa South of the Sahara; South Asia; East Asia; Southeast Asia; Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.

A useful reference for anyone who wants to learn more about the different regions of the world.
