Human Geography: People, Place, and Culture, 10th Edition

Human Geography: People, Place, and Culture, 10th Edition (EHEP002089) cover image
Human Geography 10th Edition includes all of the important concepts and theory on Human Geography as previous issues with a more succinct and engaging narrative while going in depth to touch on all the major themes of the topic. The text focuses on identity and how every human being forges an identity in a globalized world.  It includes recurring coverage of "identity" and how people make places and shape identities to see global, local and individual implications of decisions that people make every day.

The main objective of this issue is to provide more understanding of human systems from a spatial perspective; ways to think globally; and ways to understand real-world implications of Human Geography. The text will help encourage a better understanding of how to create an identity in a globalized world and how decisions happen in a global context and can have global impacts.
