This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books à la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs 35% less than a new textbook.

Trusted for its timeliness and ample learning aids, this best-seller introduces geography as a social science by emphasizing the relevance of geographic concepts to human problems. Another main focus of the book is the relationship between globalization and cultural diversity, which is woven throughout the narrative. Rubenstein addresses these themes with a clear organization and presentation that you'll find both readable and engaging.
