Synopsis

Pearson eText gives you access to the text whenever and wherever you can access the Internet. The eText pages look exactly like the printed text, and include powerful interactive and customization functions. This does not include the actual bound book. This is the access code card for the eText version.The Fourth Edition of World Regions in Global Context retains its strong global sensibility and its emphasis on current concerns, with models of interdependent development, spatial and social inequality, and questions of spatial justice. This revision is more user-friendly in the organization of the material in each chapter. The authors maintain that regions are the outcomes of a set of world-spanning systems; therefore, each regional chapter stresses the global systems of connection that drive unique regional processes, thus making regions different. By studying regions, you'll not only learn the critical elements of different places, but also come to understand the fundamental processes that drive change.

His teaching and research focuses on the relationships between individuals (homeowners, hunters, professional foresters), environmental actors (lawns, elk, mesquite trees), and the institutions that connect them. He and his students seek to explain human environmental practices and knowledges, the influence the environment has on human behavior and organization, and the implications this holds for ecosystem health, local community, and social justice. Past projects have examined chemical use in the suburban United States, elk management in Montana, forest product collection in New England, and wolf conservation in India.
