9780131497054: Human Geography: Places and Regions in Global Context

Knox/Marston’s contemporary approach fosters awareness of current issues and developing trends from a geographic perspective. The authors give meaning to people and places by integrating compelling local, regional, and global viewpoints. By giving students access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories – with a strong foundation in the fundamentals – the text not only builds knowledge about places and regions, but fosters a deeper understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world.
