A Look Inside
Main Description
Designed for a one-term sophomore through senior level course in geography, this text describes and analyzes locational patterns of various economic and urban activities, where those activities locate, and why. By combining the location/spatial interaction approach with a description of economic patterns, the text strikes a balance between the dominant theories of the last three decades. Unmatched coverage of North America, particularly the U.S., is included.
Main Description
Provides readers with a solid background in the theories of economic geography, while examining contemporary issues. Updated edition integrates new recent research on industrial geography using information published within the last ten years with an added global emphasis. Features a new chapter on interdependent global economies and improved figures and graphics, including updated tables throughout the text.
