Product description

"Contemporary World Regional Geography" provides a current, balanced geographical study of world issues through analysis of ten world regions and the countries in each. It integrates the themes of 'global connections' and 'local voices' and utilizes a consistent structure within each chapter. It includes per reviewer requests. Each chapter is now organized to begin with environmental issues of the region followed by historical geography, global and local issues and economic, political, cultural, and social issues. The greatest advantage of the new organization is that students will be able to easily compare one region with another to understand similarities and differences.
