Appropriate for first-year regional geography and Canadian studies courses in both colleges and universities. This text applies the valuable heartland-hinterland perspective to Canada in the late 1990s. This framework not only defines Canada's position in the world system, but assigns geographical roles to the regions of Canada, accounts for the significant shaping forces of regional growth, and focuses attention on the current issues of regionalism.
