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 anintroduction by the editors and 48 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 therecent scholarship of American geographers. While it focuses on work since 1990, it additionally includes related prior work and work by non-American geographers. Includes a foreword by the eminent geographer Gilbert White.
Gary L. Gaile is at Professor of Geography, University of Colorado, Boulder. Cort J. Willmott is at Professor of Geography, University of Delaware.
