A distinctly modern look at human geography

Described as fresh, innovative, and intelligent, Human Geography: Places and Regions in Global Context is acclaimed for its global approach, conceptual rigor, engaging real-world applications, and outstanding visual program. Knox and Marston foster awareness of current issues and developing trends from a geographic perspective, and provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of human geography. 

The authors integrate compelling local, regional, and global viewpoints to give meaning to people and places. By providing access to the latest ideas, concepts, and theories, the text deepens students understanding of the interdependence of places and regions in a globalizing world. The Seventh Edition extends Knox/Marstons modern approach, integrating new technology as well as new visual and thematic features relevant to human geography today.
