Contemporary World Regional Geography provides a current, balanced geographical study of world issues through analysis of ten world regions and the countries in each. It integrates the themes of "global connections" and "local voices" and utilizes a consistent structure within each chapter. Per reviewer requests, each chapter is now organized to begin with environmental issues of the region followed by historical geography, global and local issues and economic, political, cultural, and social issues. The greatest advantage of the new organization is that students will be able to easily compare one region with another to understand similarities and differences.

For courses in world regional geography. Conceptual Exploration of World Regions and the Myriad Issues Critical to Geography Today World Regions in Global Context presents a strong global sensibility and an emphasis on current events, with examples of interdependent development, spatial and social inequality, and questions of spatial justice. The authors maintain that regions are the outcomes of the twin forces of globalization and regionalization. Therefore, each regional chapter stresses the global systems of connection that drive unique regional processes, making regions different. By studying regions, students not only learn the critical elements of different places, but also come to understand the fundamental processes that drive change. The Sixth Edition is a briefer, more visual text that still maintains its conceptual rigor by addressing today's critical geographic themes, incorporating deeper focus on sustainability issues, new human stories from the regions, cutting-edge data visualizations and infographics, including a completely modernized cartography program, and much more. Also Available with MasteringGeographyTM This title is also available with MasteringGeography-an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualized coaching to help students stay on track.
