Summary

For courses in world regional geography.

 

Empower students to address global issues

Globalization and Diversity: Geography of a Changing World incorporates a contemporary, thematic approach to introduce the latest ideas and concepts in world regional geography. The text provides students with the core materials for developing a strong foundation in the fundamentals of world regions and a strong sense of place for an understanding of the connections within and between world regions. With a focus on the environment and globalization, the text’s arresting visual layout and updated content combine to give students an accurate portrayal of the world’s evolving regional landscapes.

 

The 6th Edition encourages students to explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of world regions with embedded links to interactive, digital resources that offer insight into world regional geography through explorations of space, language, music, and cooking traditions. The new edition also shows how geographic tools improve the human condition when facing timely challenges such as natural disasters, disease outbreaks, crisis and humanitarian mapping, and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Deeper mobile integration enables instructors to use web maps, video tours, and geoscience animations to enhance students’ virtual, active learning experience.
