Description:

Authoritative and lucidly written, The Human Mosaic spans the full breadth of traditional human geography while incorporating the best of recent insights from cultural studies. Its distinctive thematic approach (chapters are organized around the themes of culture region, cultural diffusion, cultural ecology, cultural integration, and cultural landscape) lends coherence to a thoroughly updated text that portrays the cultural geography of the world today.

The W. P. Webb Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Texas in Austin, Terry G. Jordan received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1965 and was part of the strong tradition in historical geography there. Over the past 20 years, he has produced a set of books that combine the best traditions in cultural geography. In these works he has included both cultural landscape features, such as building types, and more broadly relevant historical topics, such as ethnicity. Jordan, who has served as president of the Association of American Geographers, also has brought his expertise to general texts in cultural geography.
