Each chapter addresses these themes in a consistent order.New! Geographic InsightsChapters now begin with five learning objectives called Geographic Insights, each tied to a specific theme as it unfolds within the chapter. Geographic Insights are reviewed in “Things to Remember” sections throughout the chapter, as well as in “Geographic Insights Review and Self-Test” sections at the end of each chapter. New! On the Bright SideThese new commentaries offer relief from the often dispiriting view of the world today by highlighting hopeful patterns and opportunities emerging within each region. New!
