Summary

For introductory courses in Human or Cultural Geography found in Geography, Anthropology, or Social Science departments."In order to understand places, they must first be made meaningful to us." Knox/Marston's exciting contemporary approach gives people and places meaning by covering compelling topics that integrate today's local, regional, and global perspectives. It provides not only a body of knowledge about places and regions, but also a deep understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world. Coverage throughout is intellectually empowering and capable of cultivating a life-long geographical imagination. The authors give students access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories while concurrently developing a strong foundation in the fundamentals.
