The geography and people of the world are constantly changing. In our global era, geographic perspective is more vital than ever. Understanding the world of the past and the present requires a basic understanding of the physical components of the earth.


The exercises in this workbook explain the relationships between human activity and the physical and topographic features of the earth. The workbook is designed to explain the correlations between historical events and geography through assignments that encompass reading and interpreting maps. Any systemic approach to the history of civilization demands a global, historical, chronological and geographic perspective. With that in mind, the thirty-three map exercises in this workbook provide an essential context to world history.
