Summary
    World Regional Geography: Places, Peoples, and Cultures provides students with a fresh approach to the study of world geography through a topical exploration of ten major world regions. The text explores the landscapes and societies on Earth in order to appreciate the environmental diversity of the planet and the cultural richness of humanity from the interdisciplinary perspective of geography. The book is richly illustrated with maps, photos, and graphs.

    The book begins with a chapter introducing students to the geographic perspectives used to study places, people, and culture, including physical environment, human-environment interaction, population patterns and trends, systems of communication, systems of belief, political organization of space, and economic activities. Subsequent chapters build upon this knowledge and framework to help students explore North America, Europe, the Russian Realm, Southwestern Asia and Northern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Australia and Oceania. Students study demographics, religion, linguistics, politics, agriculture, tourism, foreign and domestic policy, and more as they travel the world.

    In reading World Regional Geography, students gain a deeper understanding of the rich geography and cultural traditions of major regions around the globe. It is an excellent resource for undergraduate courses in geography, international studies, and related fields.
