Introduction to Geography: People, Places and Environment

Introduction to Geography: People, Places and Environment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner in its third edition of the TEXTY award for books in social sciences, this up-to-the-minute revision continues to affirm that what happens at places depends increasingly on what happens among places, and mapped patterns can be understood only if we understand the patterns of movement that create and continuously rearrange them. Introduces the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of geography. Presents a wide range of positions currently debated about provocative current issues. Emphasizes both scientific and humanistic analytical skills, and weaves the theme of human-environmental interaction throughout. A useful, comprehensive reference for anyone interested in using geography to understand current events.

About the Author

Edward F. Bergman was born in Wisconsin and studied at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), the University of Vienna (Austria), and the University of Washington in Seattle. Today he teaches at Lehman College of the City University of New York and lectures widely across several continents. When not lecturing or writing, he enjoys Manhattan's cultural and social life.

 

William H. Renwick earned a B.A. from Rhode Island College in 1973 and a Ph.D. in geography from Clark University in 1979. He has taught at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Rutgers University, and is currently Associate Professor of Geography at Miami University. A physical geographer with interests in geomorphology and environmental issues, his research focuses on impacts of land-use change on rivers and lakes, particularly in agricultural landscapes in the Midwest. When time permits, he studies these environments from the seat of a wooden canoe.
