About the Book :

Millions have followed and are following the path of regional geography but Regional geography has followed none. Regional geography is the root as well as the roof of all geographical concepts and theories. In any geographical study, whatever may be the subject-matter and techniques on study, one has to come down to spatial and regional considerations to effect a better understanding of the subject. It is a well developed discipline of geography and a technique of study, which provides linkages to almost all geographical thoughts. Region and regionalism are such dominant aspects of geography that they have spread their dimensions to almost all scientific evaluations whether that is a medical science, physical science, law and social sciences. Hence, now-a- days, regions and regionalization have become catchwords in most scientific thought and planning because they provide an insight into wholeness of the environmental system. The homogeneous characteristic regions of the world have been widely studied by geographers but there is an utter lack of cohesion due to diversified studies and non-availability of current data. In such a situation, the purpose of this book is to present comprehensive and precise details of various facets of regional geography of the world after incorporating recent spurt of regional development in almost all spheres of human life and parts of the globe. In this study, papers have been included for both micro- and macro-level studies so that they may represent an integrated geographical study of regions.
