For courses in world regional geography. Conceptual Exploration of World Regions and the Myriad Issues Critical to Geography Today World Regions in Global Context presents a strong global sensibility and an emphasis on current events, with examples of interdependent development, spatial and social inequality, and questions of spatial justice. The authors maintain that regions are the outcomes of the twin forces of globalization and regionalization. Therefore, each regional chapter stresses the global systems of connection that drive unique regional processes, making regions different. By studying regions, students not only learn the critical elements of different places, but also come to understand the fundamental processes that drive change. The 6th Edition is a briefer, more visual text that still maintains its conceptual rigor by addressing today’s critical geographic themes, incorporating deeper focus on sustainability issues, new human stories from the regions, cutting-edge data visualizations and infographics, including a completely modernized cartography program, and much more. Also Available with Mastering Geography This title is also available with Mastering™ Geography--an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results.

Human Geography: Places and Regions in Global Context takes a fresh approach to human geography, reflecting the major changes that have recently been impressed on global, regional, and local landscapes. These changes include the globalization of industry, the rise of China and India, the upwelling of ethnic regionalisms on the heels of decolonization and the formation of new states, the rapid urbanization of the periphery and the physical restructuring of cities, the transformation of traditional agricultural practices, the trend toward transnational political and economic organizations, and the dramatic advances in information and communication technologies. Human Geography: Places and Regions in Global Context introduces the many new ideas, concepts, and theories that address these changes while also teaching the fundamentals of human geography: the principles, concepts, theoretical frameworks, and basic knowledge that are necessary to more specialized studies.

This book offers a relatively non- mathematical, real-world look at the design and operation of the complex measurement systems used in the experimental mechanics testing business where the over-arching requirement is test data that is valid beyond the question of a doubt, delivered on time, and economically affordable. It tells engineers what they need to know to survive on a daily basis in such test laboratories in today's high pressure, competitive and leveraged, cost driven, process-oriented test world. Explains the 10 crucial technical issues that must be understood and under control at all times if effective and perceptive measurements are to be made on a daily basis in the test laboratory. Also discusses a working philosophy, responsibility and engineering ethcis, and management of the measurements activity. Features, here for the first time, The Measurement Contract, a definition of who owes what to whom when working in a really effective test laboratory. For any and all engineers and engineering managers responsible for the timely delivery of demonstrably valid test data in testing laboratories or whose organizations product quality depends on that testing.

"Aspiring Academics is a set of essays designed to help graduate students and early career faculty get started in their careers in geography and related social and environmental sciences. Rather than viewing faculty work as a collection of unrelated tasks, Aspiring Academics stresses the interdependence of teaching, research, and service and the importance of achieving a healthy balance in professional and personal life. Drawing on several years of research, the chapters provide accessible, forward-looking advice on topics that often cause the most stress in the first years of a college or university appointment." "Aspiring Academics also features a companion website offering dozens of activities that can be used in workshops, seminars, and informal gatherings of graduate students and faculty. Written in a spirit of collegiality and sharing of support, visitors to the website can participate in discussion forums and contribute their own resources and tips for others."--Jacket.
