Exploring Physical Geography, 2nd Edition by Stephen Reynolds

Exploring Physical Geography, 2nd Edition by Stephen Reynolds, Robert V. Rohli Professor, Julia Johnson, Peter Waylen Professor, Mark Andrew Francek Profssor
Requirements: .PDF reader, 838 MB
Overview: Stephen Reynolds, author of the highly successful Exploring Geology, brings his ground-breaking, visually spectacular approach to Exploring Physical Geography. Intended for an introductory geography course, such as Physical Geography, Reynolds Exploring Physical Geography promotes inquiry and science as an active process. It encourages student curiosity and aims to activate existing student knowledge by posing the title of every two-page spread and every subsection as a question. In addition, questions are dispersed throughout the book. Integrated into the book are opportunities for students to observe patterns, features, and examples before the underlying concepts are explained. That is, we employ a learning-cycle approach where student exploration precedes the introduction of geographic terms and the application of knowledge to a new situation.

The Geography Of Money by Benjamin J. Cohen

The Geography Of Money by Benjamin J. Cohen
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5,2 MB
Overview: The traditional assumption holds that the territory of money coincides precisely with the political frontiers of each nation state: France has the franc, the United Kingdom has the pound, the United States has the dollar. But the disparity between that simple mental landscape and the actual organization of currency spaces has grown in recent years, as territorial boundaries of individual states limit currency circulation less and less. Many currencies are used outside their "home" country for transactions either between nations or within foreign states. In this book, Benjamin J. Cohen asks what this new geography of money reveals about financial and political power. Cohen shows how recent changes in the geography of money challenge state sovereignty. He examines the role of money and the scope of cross-border currency competition in today’s world. Drawing on new work in geography and network theory to explain the new spatial organization of monetary relations, Cohen suggests that international relations, political as well as economic, are being dramatically reshaped by the increasing interpenetration of national monetary spaces. This process, he explains, generates tensions and insecurities as well as opportunities for cooperation.

The Geography of Madness: Penis Thieves by way of Frank Bures

The Geography of Madness: Penis Thieves, Voodoo Death, and the Search for the Meaning of the World’s Strangest Syndromes by way of Frank Bures
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.2 MB
Overview: Why do a little males turn out to be convinced-despite what medical doctors inform them-that their penises have, merely, disappeared. Why do other folks the world over turn out to be satisfied that they’re cursed to die on a specific date-and then do? Why do other folks in Malaysia “run amok”?

In The Geography of Madness, acclaimed mag creator Frank Bures investigates those and different “culture-bound” syndromes, tracing every apparently baffling phenomenon to its supply. It’s an enchanting, and from time to time rollicking, journey that takes the reader world wide and deep into the eccentricities of the human psyche. What Bures uncovers alongside the way in which is a poignant and stirring tale of the patience of trust, worry, and hope.
