It’s a Fact!: Egyptian Mummy

It’s hard to believe when we see an ancient Egyptian mummy in a museum that it is the body of a real person who lived more than 5,000 years ago. But thanks to the skills of embalmers or mummy makers, today we are able to look into the face of an ancient pharaoh or queen. What techniques were used to preserve bodies? What sacred rituals were performed? And what myths and legends did the ancient Egyptians believe about the afterlife?

How to Lie with Maps 3e

How to Lie with Maps 3e
An instant classic when first published in 1991, How to Lie with Maps revealed how the choices mapmakers make–consciously or unconsciously–mean that every map inevitably presents only one of many possible stories about the places it depicts. The principles Mark Monmonier outlined back then remain true today, despite significant technological changes in the making and use of maps. The introduction and spread of digital maps and mapping software, however, have added new wrinkles to the ever-evolving landscape of modern mapmaking. Fully updated for the digital age, this new edition of How to Lie with Maps examines the myriad ways that technology offers new opportunities for cartographic mischief, deception, and propaganda. While retaining the same brevity, range, and humor as its predecessors, this third edition includes significant updates throughout as well as new chapters on image maps, prohibitive cartography, and online maps. It also includes an expanded section of color images and an updated list of sources for further reading.

Geography: Physical, Economic, Regional (Classic Reprint)

Geography: Physical, Economic, Regional (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Geography: Physical, Economic, Regional

The World War stimulated the reconstruction of our educational scheme, and in all parts of this country efforts are being made so to recast our courses of study that school-education may be of greater value in the affairs of life.

In this work the secondary schools are being carefully studied. This is very important because comparatively few of our young people extend their school life beyond the high school. This means that the studies selected for this four-year period should be chosen because of their actual value to the average individual, rather than because they prepare a few students to enter college.

Statistical Methods for Geography

Statistical Methods for Geography
Statistical Methods for Geography is a systematic introduction to the essential techniques that all students must understand to complete a module in statistical analysis. It provides an integrated overview of spatial data and spatial data analysis.

Key features include:

– An applied focus on methods for geographers: the text presents a detailed discussion of regression analysis and autocorrelation – the principal methods of statistical inference used in geography

– An introduction to the principles of spatial analysis and spatial patterns, including probability and probability models; hypothesis testing and sampling; analysis of variance; point patterns; and patterns in areal data. The text concludes with an overview of data reduction techniques

– Unlike other introductory primers, Statistical Methods for Geography includes self-assessment exercises – with downloadable data sets – at the end of each chapter. The use and application of statistical software – including SPSS – is discussed throughout.

Statistical Methods for Geography will be required reading for undergraduate modules in statistical analysis and a useful précis of techniques for post-graduate students

`Peter Rogerson has provided us with an accessible introduction to the main statistical procedures used by geographers, along with valuable illustrations of how these can be applied using SPSS for Windows. As a primer in statistical analysis for geographers it will be widely used and appreciated.’ – Professor Ron Johnston, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol
