Summary

This exciting, contemporary approach to World Regional Geography acknowledges the geographic changes that accompany today’s rapid rate of globalization. The authors' unique approach gives you access to the latest ideas, concepts and theories in geography while also developing a strong foundation in the fundamentals of world regions, including a strong sense of place and an understanding of the connections within and between world regions.

Globalization and Diversity is a briefer version of the popular Diversity Amid Globalization by the same authors. This distillation focuses on core materials that professors and students need in a World Regional Geography course. This condensed book is a useful tool for those instructors interested in a briefer text, or for those who are concerned about the reading ability of their students.

- Increased coverage of global climate change: Discussion of global climate change is expanded in Chapter 2. In addition, the impact of climate change is discsussed in the context of each regional chapter.

- New redesigned cartography: The map program has been thoroughly redesigned to an open, visually appealing approach while retaining the accuracy and pedagogical focus of previous edition maps.
