World Geography - Volume 5: North America & the Caribbean

August 2020

This volume covers the region of North America and the Caribbean!

No longer does the study of geography mean just memorizing names and locations of places. Today, geography is the understanding the characteristics of places and the complex interconnections among them. This volume of World Geography covers the region of North America and the Caribbean. Each volume includes the following categories:

  • Geographical Concepts and Worldview
  • Human Geography, including Political Geography
  • Regional Breakdown 
  • Physical Geography
  • Economic Geography
  • Biogeography and Natural Resources
  • Gazetteer

These broad categories are further segmented into 20-25 chapters that include hydrology, climatology, natural resources, population distribution, culture regions, exploration, urbanization, agriculture, industries, engineering projects, transportation, and communications.

The gazetteer that is a part of each volume is extensive. It includes hundreds of descriptive entries on significant places in the region and corresponding maps. In addition, each volume includes helpful maps, photos, and sidebars. The back matter of each volume includes a comprehensive glossary with 1,600 basic geographical terms, and a thorough subject index.

This second edition of World Geography has been carefully updated to reflect the world in 2020. There is no better resource to get a sense of how geography affects our world, our country, and our neighborhood.
