For introductory courses in Human or Cultural Geography found in Geography, Anthropology, or Social Science departments. Places and Regions in Global Context: Human Geography includes the most recent information available providing professors with a tool to more effectively help their students understand the today's world. In order to understand places, they must first be made meaningful to us. Paul Knox and Sallie Marston's exciting contemporary approach gives people and places meaning by covering compelling topics that integrate today's local, regional, and global perspectives. It provides not only a body of knowledge about places and regions, but also a deep understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world. Coverage throughout is intellectually empowering and capable of cultivating a life-long geographical imagination. The authors give students access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories while concurrently developing a strong foundation in the fundamentals.
