The Fourth Edition of World Regions in Global Context retains its strong global sensibility and its emphasis on current concerns, with models of interdependent development, spatial and social inequality, and questions of spatial justice. This revision is more user-friendly in the organization of the material in each chapter, with greater consistency among regional chapters in terms of the critical processes that shape regions. The authors maintain that regions are the outcomes of a set of world-spanning systems. Therefore, each regional chapter stresses the global systems of connection that drive unique regional processes, thus making regions different. By studying regions, students not only learn the critical elements of different places, but also come to understand the fundamental processes that drive change.
