Physical geography is presented more consistently from chapter to chapter with major revisions to several chapters.
* A foldout map of the world in 1900 is included so that comparisons can be made from the beginning to the end of the 20th century.
* Website highlights approximately 13 Virtual Field Trips which provide the opportunity for readers to travel (virtually) to other areas of the world, while also developing analytical skills.
This market-leading textbook has undergone a significant change: the overall organization has shifted from developed/underdeveloped countries to a more practical format which focuses on the enormous regional and social disparities in individual countries within the realm. The text has been streamlined and the chapters are organized into two distinct parts: Defining the Realm (physical, historical, and cultural background) and Regions of the Realm (more specific descriptions of each region). Contains increased emphasis on urban geography, reflected in a new segment entitled Among the Realm's Great Cities. As in previous editions, this one includes outstanding illustrative materials and the most up-to-date nomenclature and maps.
I keep this on my shelf of books in my living room because I need it at hand for history classes. I come back to it again and again.
I sorta wish it had more full page maps.
