Introduction to Geography
People, Places, and EnvironmentBook - 2008 | 4th ed.
For courses in Introductory Geography. Winner in its third edition of the TEXTY award (of the Text and Academic Authors' Association) for books in social sciences, this up-to-the-minute revision continues to affirm that what happens at places depends increasingly on what happens among places, and mapped patterns can be understood only if we understand the patterns of movement that create and continuously rearrange them. The authors introduce the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of the discipline, and present a wide range of positions currently debated about provocative current issues. The text emphasizes both scientific and humanistic analytical skills, and weaves the theme of human-environmental interaction throughout.
