William Wyckoff, Montana State University.

Globalization and Diversity is an exciting contemporary approach to World Regional Geography that explicitly acknowledges the geographic changes that accompany today's rapid rate of globalization. Organizes each regional chapter into five thematic sections: Environmental Geography; Population and Settlement; Cultural Coherence and Diversity; Geopolitical Framework; Economic and Social Development. Features approximately 15 standardized maps in each regional chapter, including a chapter-opening map with countries and place names; a physical map, showing landforms hydrology, and tectonic boundaries; a climate map, with climograph call-outs giving temperature and precipitation data for specific cities; a "transformation of the Earth" map with call-outs to environmental issues and solutions within the region; a population map for the region; a map of regional languages; a geopolitical map with call-outs to current issues and tensions. For anyone interested in learning more about world geography.

I like it a lot! I heartily recommend this book, and college course, for a serious student of our world.
As part of my current education plan of working towards my second bachelor degree, Geography is required, and glad it worked out this way. Although I am an experienced man of the world, I have not had a formal geography class since grade school, indeed, not even when in college the first time. Taking this course not only covers the location and topography of all the continents, oceans, nations, states , cities, but also other frameworks, namely:
Environmental geography.
Population & settlement, people on the land, population growth & change, demographic transitions, migration patterns.
Cultural coherence & diversity: the geography of tradition & change, culture in a globalizing world, when cultures collide.
Geopolitical framework: fragmentation, unity, nation states, colonialism
Economic & social development: geography of wealth & poverty, more- and less-developed countries, indicators of economic and social development.

Needed the access code for Mastering Geography that the title said it would come with and it didn't. So guess what I have to do? Ship it back and get a different one somewhere else.

This is a decent geography textbook. It has two chapters that introduce basic geographical tools and concepts. The next 12 chapters give overviews of world regions. The regional overviews cover physical geography, environmental issues, culture, politics, and history, among other things.

Loose leaf may seem like a ridiculous textbook option however, this is the only way to go! Instead of having to carry the entire textbook to class, I just take out the chapter we are covering that week and put it in a smaller binder. Then, I leave the rest of the text at home which means a much lighter backpack! This option does come with a valid MasteringGeography access code and arrived to Hawaii when it was expected, without any issues.

Good, but I couldn't find a binder that could hold the extremely wide pages. Probably would have just bought the bound book looking back.

My expectations and the product description were perfectly met. I am totally satisfied with my purchase. If you need this book for a class, this is a great, simple, and cheap way to go. Do it!

As an older woman returning to college, I picked Geography as on of my classes for the semester imagining in my mind specifics about what we were going to learn in class. I was wrong. It was so much more. I am sad that I have to return this book because the class was amazing. The class and this book made me feel as if I visited parts of the world I didn't know existed.

It was very in-depth and surprisingly very up to date. This book contains all important historical information that has happened even after and 9-11. For each continent it talked about world globalization, environment, regions, temperatures, climate change, politics, conflicts, farming, trades, money, culture, language, migrations, land area, seas, lakes, mountains, drug trades, "The Red Market", everything! Also, it is very clearly written, very easy to understand with beautiful picture illustrations that include maps and sub heads to describe what is happening in a scene. Tables that show rates of population increase, who's increasing their population and how many cultures are not. GIS maps that give you a true look at what's going on with detailed explanation. This book is very well done.

Although I found the chapters were very long and it would take more than a day or evening to get through one, they all had links to videos to watch which I found to be faster and extremely interesting and helpful in learning about certain areas of the world when time wasn't on my side, and those going to college know exactly what I mean.

Anyone thinking about taking this class, especially those taking journalism and or photography who may be interested in making documentaries or those who like to travel or those just interested in the world should take this class and have the professor use this book! I am a photography major and love to travel and this class inspired me and fueled my desire even more to get out there and explore the world. I was sad to see the class end last night. This book made me feel as if I took off on a world tour adventure and now its over. Out of all my travels this was the best trip I have ever been on.

Thank you for the rental of this book. I hope someone else gets as much out of it as I did.
Good textbook
