Summary: For introductory courses in Human or Cultural Geography found in Geography, Anthropology, or Social Science departments.

Knox/Marston's contemporary approach fosters awareness of current issues and developing trends from a geographic perspective. The authors give meaning to people and places by integrating compelling local, regional, and global viewpoints. By giving students access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories-with a strong foundation in the ...show more fundamentals-the text not only builds knowledge about places and regions, but fosters a deeper understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world.

Features

  • A Global Framework: Promotes an easier connection between topical and regional material by emphasizing how their processes are linked (e.g., technological innovation and the varying ways technology is adopted and modified by people and places). Facilitates meaningful comparisons between people and places in different parts of the world, such as how the core-generated industrialization of agriculture shapes gender relations in households, both in the core and in the periphery. Presents the salient aspects of new emphases in academic human geography (e.g., the new geopolitics and its role in the social construction of spaces and places).
  • A Focus on Fundamentals: Provides access not only to the new ideas, concepts, and theories that address the changes mentioned above but also to the fundamentals of human geography: the principles, concepts, theoretical frameworks, and basic knowledge.
  • A Thematic Structure: Several important themes are woven into every chapter:
    • Interdependence of people and places, especially the interactive relationships between the core and the periphery.
    • Social and cultural differences that are embedded in human geographies, especially the differences that relate to race, ethnicity, gender, age, and class.
    • The relationship between global processes and their local manifestations.
    • The continuing transformation of the political economy of the world system and nations, regions, cities and localities.
  • A Changing World: Takes a contemporary approach to human geography, reflecting many developing trends in the discipline such as the globalization of industry; the upwelling of ethnic regionalisms on the heels of decolonization and new state formation; and the emerging trend toward transnational political and economic organizations.
  • Superior Cartography: Offers a rich, diverse, and updated cartographic program with hundreds of maps that help professors better teach their students the important spatial elements inherent to human geography. The cartography program features hundreds of maps that display meticulous attention to detail. In addition, the cartography program features several other important elements:
  • o Compound Figures: The book features many compound figures that combine maps with photographs and line drawings. These capture student interest, while helping them integrate spatial, visual, and conceptual information.
  • Everyday-Life and mental maps: These maps feature people's perceptions of their surroundings, and highlight maps as useful tools for conducting everyday life.
