Introduction to Geography: People, Places, and Environment, Fifth Edition emphasizes that what happens in places depends increasingly on what happens among places—and that mapped patterns can be understood only by recognizing the movement that creates and continuously rearranges them. The authors emphasize the integration of various aspects of geographic processes and systems by discussing what happens in one set of geographic processes and how that affects others. For example, what happens in economic systems affects environmental conditions; what happens to climate affects political dynamics. In this text, the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of the discipline of geography are introduced. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
