Summary

Introduction to Geography, Second Edition is built around three themes: the belief in the interrelationship between humans and their natural environment; the philosophy that many basic principles of human geography can be studied and demonstrated locally; and the idea that geography is dynamic. From this perspective, Bergman and Renwick give students the tools they need to understand current events, decide where to live, seek or build a career, and inform their own political opinions. The text also embraces contemporary issues in geography such as environmental change and adaptation, and gender justice.
