This book contains a LOT of concepts and valuable information that I took a lot away from. It seems a bit overworded at times and chapters are pretty long, if you know how to pick out the important information and know what to look for, then this book will be good for you. Not ALL the information in here is important, but a lot of it is very useful.

Harm J. Muller (Author), Jan Nijman (Author) & 0 more. ISBN-13: 978-1118250556. This book was in fair condition when I received it. I ended up needing a different book for my class so I never read this book but it looks interesting and I will probably read it when I bored one day. There are lots of visual aids throughout the book and it breaks the information into manageable chunks.

Building upon the strength and success of deBlij & Muller's best-selling Geography: Realms, Regions, and Concepts, Tenth Edition, CONCEPTS AND REGIONS offers students and instructors all of the content that has made Regions the definitive World Regional Geography text but in a briefer, technologically-rich package. At about one-half the length of most world regional texts, the text offers brief regional descriptions, applications of core concepts, and definitions to acquaint students with the spatial interconnections between the human and physical systems of the earth. The accompanying interactive CD-ROM serves two key functions. First, the CD contains all of the content from Realms, Regions, and Concepts 10/e, allowing students and instructors to delve deeper into the subject matter found in the text. Second, the CD features the GeoDiscoveries Present-Interact-Assess framework which enables students to animate and interact with maps, view videos, and test themselves, providing them instant assessment feedback on key concepts. GeoDiscoveries for CONCEPTS features an interactive globe, multiple-choice questions, drag-and-drop map exercises, key term matching exercises, flashcards, demonstrations of concepts and geographic techniques, critical thinking exercises, interactive animations, and more. GeoDiscoveries is designed to be used both by students for understanding and assessment of key concepts, as well as by instructors for in-class presentations. The third component of the CONCEPTS learning system is its website, which features interactive testing, links to geographic organizations and interactive exercises that illustrate key concepts in action. Many weblinks come from region-specific sites, allowing students to listen to live radio broadcasts or to view real-time images from a region.

Harm deBlij is a real tour-de-force in the study of geography. His perspective and tireless efforts on behalf of the discipline, is much appreciated.

I got this as a textbook for a geography class a few years ago. I was really surprised at how much I actually got from the class and I attribute it all to this book. It's not just about memorizing the locations of countries and cities, this book goes into detail about how and why borders are where they are. That sounds daunting, but it's very straight forward and concise and really puts it all into perspective.

I keep this on my shelf of books in my living room because I need it at hand for history classes. I come back to it again and again.

I sorta wish it had more full page maps.

I loved this class, I still have the book and sometimes reference it when I am writing stories, there are a lot of interesting tid bits in this book too.

I ended up dropping this course. The book was not an easy read, but my professor made up his own answers and didn't follow the book. I could use a better geography book. This seemed outdated.

Geography: Realms, Regions and Concepts is an excellent text which provides the student with all information relevant to understanding geography on a whole; its regions and landforms, climate, politics and people. There is adequate information for every area of the world, and I am very pleased my instructor required this text.

I would highly recommend this book or any other editions of the author, de Blij, to teachers and students alike!
Good condition!
