Regional Conflict and Cooperation

A Framework for Understanding Global Geography (First Edition)
Brian McCabe

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63189-966-9, 478 pages


Regional Conflict and Cooperation: A Framework for Understanding Global Geography is an invaluable tool for comprehending the complexity of the world in clear, simple terms. The book helps students to understand the influences that shape world regions. It employs conventional approaches to the study of world regions, then highlights important moments, events, and trends that either fostered conflict or led to regional cooperation.

Ten regions are discussed: Europe; Russia and Central Asia; North Africa and Southeast Asia; Sub-Saharan Africa; North America; Central and South America; the Indian Sub-continent; Southeast Asia and the Island Realms: East Asia; and Pacifica. The material neatly sidesteps the possibility of becoming outdated by creating frameworks of understanding that enable students to process and analyze events as they happen. Each unit includes a regional overview, key terms, case studies, and classroom discussion activities.

While written for beginning courses in global or world regional geography, Regional Conflict and Cooperation is also an excellent text for interdisciplinary social science classes, classes in anthropology and political science, or programs in peace and conflict studies.

Brian McCabe earned a master of advanced study degree in geographic education at Arizona State University and a master of arts in geography at California State University, Fullerton before becoming a member of the faculty. He has received the California State University system's Annual Author Award and a service award from the state of California for his work with the Board of Education revising the state history and social science framework. Professor McCabe is the author of Geography is Dead: How America Lost its Sense of Direction.
