Summary

Trusted for its timeliness and ample learning aids, this best-seller introduces geography as a social science by emphasizing the relevance of geographic concepts to human problems. Another main focus of the book is the relationship between globalization and cultural diversity, which is woven throughout the narrative. Rubenstein addresses these themes with a clear organization and presentation that you'll find both readable and engaging.

About the Author

Dr. James M. Rubenstein received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1975.

In 1976 he joined the faculty at Miami University, where he is currently Professor of Geography. Besides teaching courses on urban and human geography and writing textbooks, Dr. Rubenstein also conducts research in the automotive industry and has published three books on the subject, The Changing U.S. Auto Industry: A Geographical Analysis (Routledge); Making and Selling Cars: Innovation and Change in the U.S. Auto Industry (The Johns Hopkins University Press); and Who Really Made Your Car? Restructuring and Geographic Change in the Auto Industry (W.E. Upjohn Institute, with Thomas Klier).

Perfect book, It Covers everything. April 12, 2011
by
The Introduction to Human Geography taught me so much more and exposed me to new vocabulary and concepts that I was then able to learn about. Its practice tests were very helpful for establishing a baseline of where I needed to study and its explanation for answers to questions was thorough and helpful. The book was in great shape for being a used copy, great for the money; I will do business with you in the future. You delivered what you said a good product at a good price, before the estimated time! Thanks ecampus.
