To deal effectively with the complex international problems that we face as citizens of a country that is a world leader in economic, political, social, and military matters requires increased international knowledge and intercultural competence. This leads to an increased need for people who understand other societies well enough to effectively interact in many areas, including international trade, finance, foreign policy, and economic-cultural development. "Geographic Place Names of World Regions, Fourth Edition", is designed to help students overcome deficiencies in international knowledge by presenting a series of lessons to help them develop "mental maps" of various major regions of the world. Lesson instruments include: An atlas (all lessons based on the Nystrom World Atlas); Outline maps; Lesson guides; and Tests. The exercises complement and support students' efforts in introductory geography courses. In addition, the lessons help students become more geographically literate. In recent years there has been a renewed interest in international knowledge and awareness of foreign cultures. DiLisio invites students to share in this knowledge and awareness through the following features new to this edition: Special topics throughout the text, which introduce you to important geographical, economic, and environmental themes while provoking thought, controversy, and logical predictions about the future; and Pronunciation guides at the end of each chapter. It also includes: an Updated reference section that includes website information; and Discussion of world events that led to the disintegration of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, and the aftermath.
