  • "NetLink" Internet links in every chapter provide students with the opportunity to explore World Wide Web sites that contain additional information on specific topics.
  • Figures, tables, and statistics have been updated.
  • Graphs and vocabulary have been simplified to improve overall clarity.
  • Key terms and their definitions are boldfaced to indicate their importance and appear in the margins as well as in the glossary at the end of the book.
