Summary

Trusted for its timeliness and readability, this book introduces geography by emphasizing the relevance of geographic concepts to human problems. Two years after Rubenstein's Update Edition was created to encompass the events of September 11, 2001, this revision also begins the careful process of putting those events into perspective.

Provides new "Global Forces and Local Impacts" boxes in each chapter that explore in depth an issue related to chapter material, focusing on particular regions of the world. Includes new material on medical geography, terrorism, mineral resources, sustainable development, conservation, and biodiversity.

Presents new information on gender differences in development .

Expands material on Ethnicity, relating ethnicity problems to political conflict; also incorporates material previously found elsewhere in the book, such as U.S. urban patterns and South Africa's history of apartheid.

For anyone interested in learning more about world geography.

Thanks alot July 26, 2011

This is the textbook I utilize in my AP Human Geography class. It is the best text for this course. I've learned so much in that class! I actually enjoy reading the textbook. I decided not to sell it when I finished reading it, but instead I will keep it in my home library for future reference. Textbook was in great condition, shipping time was reasonable. If I ever need to, I would order from this company again.
