For undergraduate World Regional Geography courses, or for a course on globalization where instructors desire a BRIEF TREATMENT of the CORE IDEAS in World Regional Geography.
Globalization and Diversity 2e is an exciting contemporary approach to World Regional Geography that explicitly acknowledges the geographic changes that accompany today's rapid rate of globalization. The book's unique approach gives students access to the latest ideas, concepts and theories in geography while concurrently developing a strong foundation in the fundamentals of world regions. The book helps professors engender a strong sense of place and an understanding of the connections within and between world regions.
Globalization and Diversity 2e is a briefer version of the popular Diversity Amid Globalization by the same authors. This distillation focuses on core materials that professors and students need in a World Regional Geography course. This process resulted in a dramatic reduction of boxed materials, a consolidation of end-of-chapter materials, and a paring of the chapter length of discussion in the body of the text. The resulting condensed book will be a useful tool for those instructors interested in a briefer text or for those instructors who are concerned about the reading ability of their students.
