What’s your map to human geography?

Contemporary Human Geography is a modular springboard into essential human and cultural geography concepts, designed for the modern geography reader. This brief, innovative text explores contemporary human geography with a bold, visual style, with topics organized into self-contained, two-page spreads. Rubenstein’s efficient writing presents information clearly without sacrificing high-quality content.

It enables readers to analyze and critically think about data through the visualization of mapping.

With thousands of maps to explore, and the ability to upload their own data, readers can fully engage with the content.
