Summary

What’s your map to human geography?

Contemporary Human Geography  is a modular springboard into essential human and cultural geography concepts, designed for the modern geography reader. This brief, innovative text explores contemporary human geography with a bold, visual style, with topics organized into self-contained, two-page spreads. Rubenstein’s efficient writing presents information clearly without sacrificing high-quality content.

 

The 4th Edition offers new MapMaster 2.0, which is inspired by GIS and leverages recent data from the US Census Bureau, UN, CIA, World Bank, PRB, NOAA, NASA, USGS, and more. It enables readers to analyze and critically think about data through the visualization of mapping. This can help individuals connect critical, global issues to their local geography, addressing key concepts. With thousands of maps to explore, and the ability to upload their own data, readers can fully engage with the content.

Author Biography

James M. Rubenstein received his PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 1975. He was Professor of Geography at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, where he taught urban and human geography, and where he helped develop the new Sustainability co-major in the Institute for the Environment & Sustainability.


He is also the author of Pearson’s The Cultural Landscape and Introduction to Contemporary Geography. He is often invited to give talks and presentations at colleges, high schools, and professional meetings.


Rubenstein works as a regional consultant for the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank and he conducts research in the automotive industry. He is often interviewed by the media on automotive and economic issues, and has published three books on the subject: The Changing US Auto Industry: A Geographical Analysis (Routledge); Making and Selling Cars: Innovation and Change in the US 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).

 

He is a semi-amateur, semi-professional painter, and displays his work at galleries in Maryland and Ohio.
