A reader in cultural geography, this book uncovers the common themes of a vibrant, often clamorous discipline. Broadly defined, these include "how the world looks"--the patternings of cultural traits and material artifacts; "how the world works"--the dynamics of human organizations in interaction with the environment; and "what the world means"--the systems of shared values and beliefs that shape communities.
