Spatial Connections: World Regional Geography introduces the study of geography by offering a snapshot of the world’s landscapes through a series of articles. The material in this anthology meets several primary objectives. The text provides an introduction to the concept of spatial interconnection, helps students assess complicated relationships across the globe, and illustrates the landscapes on which issues and events play out. It also helps students match concepts discussed in class to recent events and discover their place in an interconnected and dynamic world. The second edition features new readings that focus on diverse subjects such as freshwater systems in Africa, tourism and barriers to economic growth in Cuba, and more.
Spatial Connections offers an alternative approach to introductory geography courses by focusing on relationships — those that currently exist, the changes that are taking place in them, the connections that are disappearing, and new connections that are being forged.
