Eye-catching learning modules get students straight to the important concepts

Contemporary Human Geography is a beautifully crafted, modular springboard into essential human and cultural geography concepts, designed for the contemporary geography student. This brief, innovative text explores current human geography in the bold visual style that distinguishes Dorling Kindersley (DK) publications. Topics within each chapter are organized into modular, self-contained, two-page spreads. Together with the graphics, Rubenstein's efficient writing presents information clearly without sacrificing the high-quality geography content essential to students and instructors. The Third Edition offers an updated cartography program, new pedagogical tools to help guide students, and the latest data and applications.

Textbook for my Human ...

Textbook for my Human Geography class. I learned quite a bit from the book, and the class itself was enjoyable. The professor, on the other hand, was a menace. I'm glad the faculty picked this book, I believe it was the only reason I learned anything about this subject. It's set up like any other DK book, paragraphs of information broken up by diagrams, maps, and photos to help you understand the subject. The book is interesting enough to be read on its own, and the chapters are fairly quick reads. I really enjoyed it.

This was a bright and ...

This was a bright and colorful book. When I first opened it I was almost daunted by all the little text boxes and visuals all over the pages. It made a very cramped page. However once I started reading the textbook as a supplement to my geography class lectures, the visuals helped immensely. I like to learn visually so all the charts, maps, and photos helped me retain the information I was reading. The content helped too. I didn't think I would be that interesting in geography but it turns out the information is really fascinating. There were all kinds of topics in this book: development, political geography, human services, food industries, populations, ethnicities, etc. There is a ton here, all about humans. And most things about humans are fascinating in my opinion. The text was very easy to read and the sections short, only two pages. Although the sections were short I didn't feel I was missing much. There was a lot covered here, all of it relevant. I'm glad I took the class, and I'm glad I read this book. It opened my eyes even wider to the wide world.
