Designed to expose readers to a variety of contemporary ideas, theories, and concepts in African geography—and their applicability in “real world” situations—each chapter is written by an expert in the field. Key definitions and basic geographic principles are specified in each chapter, providing a more comprehensive view of the themes presented. Completely revised, this edition examines recent developments and data that are important to understanding the geography of the region.
