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.
