This Human Geography Reader helps students see as a geographer sees, practice thinking and observing spatially, and ask the kinds of questions a geographer asks. The readings emphasize basic concepts of place, space, region, interaction, and movement to teach students to view standard topics in geography from a true geographic perspective. They invite the reader to apply this perspective to real-world events and processes, and consider the world with all its complexities intact. The articles can be read in the order presented, which follows most basic human geography texts. Several of the articles however, fit under multiple topics and processes. This gives the book flexibility and adaptability and makes it an excellent supplemental reader to standard textbooks. Article “Snapshot” summaries and study questions are included for each reading. These can be used to encourage in-class discussion or as the starting point for written assignments. This Human Geography Reader is suitable for introductory college human geography courses, as well as Advanced Placement Human Geography courses in high schools. Katherine Nashleanas holds a Ph.D. in geography with an emphasis on ethnic geography from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, where she is a geography faculty member in the School of Natural Resources. Her interests include human geography and the quality of the environment as well as economic geography and world regional geography. Dr. Nashleanas frequently writes and presents on ethnic groups and metageographics. She is a member of the Association of American Geographers, the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism, and of the Council for Geographic Education. She is also affiliated with Geographic Educators of Nebraska, and an alumni member of Gamma Theta Upsilon, an international geographic honor society.
