Summary

Designed for both majors and non-majors and featuring accessible, student-friendly language, The Regional Geography of Canada, Fourth Edition, begins with Canada's physical and historical geography and then works through demographic and economic geography issues. The second part of the book examines each of Canada's six regions in depth, starting with the center (Ontario and Qu bec) and working inwards from British Columbia and the Atlantic provinces. Author Robert Bone adopts an innovative approach that views Canada as characterized by four ''faultlines'' of tensions: aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples, French and English Canadians, centrist and decentrist forces, and the forces of immigration. Bone explores theses tensions, arguing that they act as forces that ensure that Canada will remain a country of regions. The structure of each chapter is the same, in order to facilitate comparisons across regional lines. Each region features a key topic (or focus) section, which allows students to gain in-depth knowledge about a particular industry or sector of the economy that is important to that area. The text incorporates numerous pedagogical tools including vignettes (boxed inserts), tables, figures, maps, and charts. The end-of-chapter material includes notes, key terms, a bibliography, and an annotated list of further readings. In addition, each chapter includes an overview, a list of objectives, and a summary.
