Gain knowledge and perspective about our diverse planet with World Regional Geography: People, Places, and Globalization. Though not everyone can travel around the globe, studying geography offers a window into the places we cannot physically go to, or perhaps wish to visit someday. The textbook is for introductory geography students. Therefore, World Regional Geography covers all the fundamentals taught in a Geography 101 course. For example, students will begin with the basics of geography, the environment and human activity, population and culture, and globalization. These general topics lay the groundwork for learning about the different land masses, climates, and habitats around the world, as well as the cultures and developments that connect them.
World Regional Geography: People, Places, and Globalization then covers each of the world's seven continents region by region. For example, it breaks the continent of Asia into Southwest, South, East, and Southeast Asia. It also breaks Africa into Subsaharan Africa and North Africa. Each region has its own chapter in the textbook. These distinctions are helpful in guiding readers around the different, unique parts of world regional geography. Plus, the book addresses the countries with the most impact on culture, globalization, and the environment.
Readers will learn about influential global regions and what connects places that, physically, have miles and miles of ocean between them. By taking a regional approach, World Regional Geography teaches about issues that have built societal and cultural structures. Students will come away with a deeper understanding of world politics and critical theories in geography.
