Alone among books for the regional geography course, Pulsipher and Pulsipher’s World Regional Geography humanizes geographical issues, showing how larger geographical forces affect the lives of individuals and communities around the globe. Students explore the field's defining concepts by focusing on the stories of real people, global trends and interregional linkages, and contemporary topics that transcend regional borders (the war on terrorism, global political order, interregional trade, the global economy, popular culture, the environment, and the Internet).
Along with a thorough updating, this edition introduces several new features that will help students explore geography across regions, while enhancing the book's standing as the most highly visual textbook for the world regional course. In addition, W. H. Freeman is proud to announce LaunchPad for Pulsipher/Pulsipher, World Regional Geography, the only online course/homework system for geography to feature adaptive quizzing—via Freeman's highly acclaimed LearningCurve.
