Global literacy is a new necessity of undergraduate education and the foundational goal of World Geography: Understanding a Changing World.

World Geography: Understanding a Changing World connects student researchers with more than 15,000 primary and secondary sources to drive analysis of the geographical, political, social, economic, and cultural forces at play in the modern globalized world. The study of individual nations and demographic comparisons between countries are both served by the database’s structure, which presents content by region but also allows for advanced searching. Within the topic center for any given country, reference material addresses everything from natural resources and traditional dress to history and contemporary issues. An advisory board of leading geographers oversees all content development in World Geography: Understanding a Changing World and also vets the original journal articles that comprise its academic roundtables.

Reviews

"With an emphasis on human geography, it presents a rich, engaging entry to the field...This resource's value comes from its engaging presentation and its consolidation, into a single discrete package, of standard reliable information a la social studies/geography textbooks..."—Choice, March 23, 2011

"ABC-CLIO’s World Geography database is a useful resource for users to explore the world around them. The World Geography database does not limit itself strictly to geography in the traditional sense—the entries on each nation include reflections on history, politics, and culture. . . . Recommended for high school and academic libraries."—ARBA, November 11, 2016
