Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Kuby’s 6th edition of Human Geography in Action is comprised of 14 stimulating, concept-based chapters. The text aims to develop geographic problem-solving skills that prove valuable to readers. Each chapter begins with an introduction to a concept, followed by a case study tying the concept into the real world and wraps up with an activity. These engaging activities featured throughout the text further its “Do Geography” approach. Human Geography in Action provides the opportunity to: use GIS to investigate ethnic distributions and culture regions, track the AIDS epidemic over space and time, model interstate migration flows, simulate India’s demographic future, add new baseball franchises, animate past urban growth and assess future growth areas.
