New Features

NEW AUTHOR- We are pleased to welcome Daniel Montello to the author team, beginning with the twelfth edition. Dr. Montello brings research experience in spatial cognition, environmental perception, behavioral geography, and geographic information science to enrich these important topics in human geography.

Chapters 7, 10, and 13 have been substantially reorganized, each chapter has been revised to improve readability, and every chapter contains at least brief text additions or modifications to reflect current data. All chapters contain new or revised illustrations, maps, and photos.

The twelfth edition contains many new and updated topics, including the following:

  • New Maps- Many existing maps have been updated for the twelfth edition of Human Geography.
  • New/Revised Topics- There are new and revised topics in the book. Details can be found in ‘detailed list of changes’ document in marketing docs
  • New Boxes- Many of the boxed elements in the text have been updated, and the following new boxes have been introduced:
    “Vancouver, Canada: Chinatown Versus Ethnoburb,” in Chapter 6
    “Eating Locally on the College Campus,” in Chapter 8
    “Where Do Your Clothes Come From?” In Chapter 9
    “What is Poverty?” In Chapter 10
    “Millennium Development Goals,” in Chapter 10
    “Sustainable Cities,” in Chapter 11
    “From Kyoto to Durban: Global Climate Change Treaties,” in Chapter 13

  • Key Features

    The “Key Concepts” alert students to the main themes of the chapter.

    Chapter introductions take the form of interest-arousing vignettes to focus student attention on the subject matter that follows.

    The boxed inserts that are part of each chapter expand on ideas included within the text or introduce related examples of chapter concepts and conclusions, often in gender-related contexts.

    Almost every chapter contains at least one special-purpose box labeled “Geography and Citizenship.” These boxes introduce a discussion of a topic of current national or international interest and conclude with a set of questions designed to induce thought and class discussion of the topic using human geographic insights students have mastered.

    Each chapter also includes other pedagogical aids. The “Summary” iterates the main points of the chapter and provides a bridge to the chapter that follows.

    Appendix B contains a modified version of the Population Reference Bureau’s 2008 World Population Data Sheet containing economic and demographic data and projections for countries, regions, and continents.
