Geography in America at the Dawn of the 21st Century surveys American geographers' current research in their specialty areas and tracks trends and innovations in the many subfields of geography. As such, it is both a 'state of the discipline' assessment and a topical reference. It includes an introduction by the editors and 47 chapters, each on a specific specialty. The authors of each chapter were chosen by their specialty group of the American Association of Geographers (AAG). Based on a process of review and revision, the chapters in this volume have become truly representative of the recent scholarship of American geographers. While it focuses on work since 1990, it additionally includes related prior work and work by non-American geographers. The initial Geography in America was published in 1989 and has become a benchmark reference of American geographical research during the 1980s. This latest volume is completely new and features a preface written by the eminent geographer, Gilbert White.

'Human Geography' examines the major trends, debates, research and conceptual evolution of human geography during the twentieth century. Considering each of the subject's primary subfields in turn, it addresses developments in both continental European and Anglo-American geography, providing a cutting-edge evaluation of each. Written clearly and accessibly by leading researchers, the book combines historical astuteness with personal insights and draws on a range of theoretical positions. A central theme of the book is the relative decline of the traditional subdisciplines towards the end of the twentieth century, and the continuing movement towards interdisciplinarity in which the various strands of human geography are seen as inextricably linked. This stimulating and exciting new book provides a unique insight into the study of geography during the twentieth century, and is essential reading for anyone studying the history and philosophy of the subject.

Human Geographies: Issues for the 21st Century has been written as a course text for students embarking on degree courses that reflect the changing priorities and new directions embraced by human geography. The analysis and interpretation of geographical change in the contemporary world is not bound by a narrow national or super-regional focus but extends to the examination of issues and problems at the global scale. The relationships between the spaces occupied by humankind are being modified and articulated by, for example, technological change, cultural hybridisation, geopolitical realignments, and new ways of organising the production and distribution of goods and services. This has coincided with the recognition that gender, cultural, and social mores are now central to interpretations of the processes and outcomes that underpin differentiation at a variety of spatial scales. The lenses through which human geographers now look in their effort to understand and to explain cultural differentiation, social polarisation or resource sustainability have become more diverse and have stimulated a more historic, sensitised approach. This has the added advantage of enhancing the contributions that human geographers make to the understanding of deep seated problems such as demographic transformation, urbanisation, uneven development or the restructuring of economies at scales ranging from the local to the national or the global. Features * 17 chapters organised into five major sections that will make students aware of the different scales and parameters for analysing the spatial dimensions of society from the pre-capitalist to the modern world * provides a framework forunderstanding the changing relationships between locality, organisations and space in the context of globalisation * extensive use of illustrations, boxes, case studies from around the world, and guides to further reading, and expected learning outcomes. This will encourage students to explore globalisation and the challenges it presents, for example, for cities, socio-demographic transformation, nation states or economic development and the environment * dedicated web site support for instructors and students Human Geography: Issues for the 21st Century is an essential text for undergraduate students of geography and related social sciences. It is invaluable reading for introductory courses in environmental science, business studies, urban studies, regional science, politics and economics.

Learning Progressions in Geography Education

International Perspectives

This book informs an international audience of teachers, scholars and policymakers about the development of learning progressions for primary and secondary geography education in various countries and regions of the world. The book represents an important contribution to learning progressions research and practice. The different chapters explore how curriculum standards and frameworks in different countries portray progress and sophistication in the learning of geography. The book compares educational systems and how teachers and curriculum developers use the concept of “learning progression” to guide educational practices. As an approach to educational research, learning progressions offer considerable potential for understanding how children develop understanding of geographic concepts and practices across grade bands and in relation to national geography standards. The book analyzes the general conditions of learning progressions within the context of a globalized world. Important themes are addressed such as: knowledge acquisition in formal education; measuring learning progressions in informal settings; learning progressions for one curriculum standard or several standards; conditions to assess progression in the learning of facts, concepts, and skills; and multiple pathways for understanding or learning geography. The contributing authors are experienced scientists in the field from all around the world giving specific insights into the practices of their countries. The book appeals to K-12 teachers, school administrators, policymakers, researchers in geography education, professors and lecturers at universities around the world.

This book argues that the 21st century will witness a fundamental global shift in economic and military hegemonic power from the U.S.-European sphere to the U.S.-Asia-Pacific region. The rise of China is recognized as the primary reason for the resurgence of the Asia-Pacific in the 21st century, but several other countries, such as Japan, South Korea, and Australia, are also becoming increasingly important geostrategic players within the region. And, there is the real potential for the development of a new and dynamic regional organization that would address the future economic and security challenges, dangers, and prospects confronting Asia-Pacific as the 21st century unfolds. Professor Randall Doyle provides a detailed and expansive overview of what is quickly becoming the fastest developing and most important region in the world. Dr. Doyle believes geography, hegemony, and politics will represent the foundational pillars for change, progress, and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region during the 21st century.
