Summary

Summary

For one-semester, introductory courses in Human Geography.

This best-selling text covers basic principles in human geography. It follows a thematic approach that emphasizes where human activities are located, why they are located in particular places, and what significance these arrangements represent. The revised seventh edition has been reworked to strengthen coverage in geography's basic concepts, to improve the cartographic program, and to clarify the "where" and "why" of organizational framework.
