About this book

The new 15th edition maintains the quality you’ve come to expect from the foremost author team in geography.  It continues to showcase authoritative content, outstanding cartography, currency, and flexibility in a technology-rich package.

Joining the author team in the 15th edition is Jan Nijman, Professor of Geography and Regional Studies at the University of Amsterdam, Professor Emeritus at the University of Miami, and a member of the National Geographic Society’s Committee for Research and Exploration.  Professor Nijman worked together with the senior authors to bring these enhancements to the new edition of Regions.

New to this edition:
- New Organization! Chapters are now divided into A/B sections. Within each chapter, Part A, Defining the Realm, examines developments that unfold across the entire realm or major parts of it. In Part B, Regions of the Realm, the authors explore the regions within the realms to view developments at a finer resolution and examine the role of individual states and national cultures.
- New and updated content incorporated into the narrative of every chapter. Chapters 8A and 8B (South Asia), for example, now discusses recent developments in the cultural and religious conflict between Pakistan and India, as well as a more detailed discussion of economic growth and effects of globalization in South Asia.
- New "Voice From the Region" feature, in every chapter. Each essay showcases the local perspective of an individual who resides in the realm.
- Many new photographs and field notes, taken by co-author Jan Nijman while doing fieldwork.
- New BBC videos, which can be used as lecture-launchers in class.
