This book employs an explicitly global approach to world regional geography that examines the interconnections between people and places at different scales, and that brings to the introductory learner the most current and powerful ideas in geography. It features an emphasis on core regions, key cities, and distinctive landscapes that allows the authors to stress global connections while still maintaining a traditional focus on places at the local scale. Chapter topics cover a world of regions; the foundations of world regions; Europe; The Russian Federation, Central Asia, and the Transcaucasus; The Middle East and North Africa; Sub-Saharan Africa; North America; Latin America and the Caribbean; East Asia; Southeast Asia; South Asia; Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific; and future regional geography. For individuals interested in world regional geography.
