Essentials of World Regional Geography

Author: Christopher Salter

ISBN: 0030313511
Release Date: 1999-09
Genre: Geography

Essentials of World Regional Geography, Third Edition, is designed for use in a one or two term introductory world regional geography course. Kit Salter and Joe Hobbs build the story of each region using contemporary concerns and historical themes to create a complete picture of our ever-changing planet and its people. The authors help students understand what aspects of a place give it identity and personality by detailing what features make it newsworthy now and what features might make it critical in the 21st century. The third edition gives strong attention to the phenomenon of globalization. This perspective has been prompted in part by the almost worldwide financial crisis that began in Southeast Asia in 1997, swept much of Asia in the following year, and then rocked Russia in 1998 and Brazil in 1999.
