This text begins with an introduction to core concepts and theory, followed by a series of policy chapters that are self-contained, allowing for a great degree of flexibility in course design. Boxes throughout the text introduce a large number of real-world examples and ongoing policy debates in order to bring new perspective to the issues being discussed.

The sixth edition features new co-author Lynne Lewis from Bates College, a new chapter on land, more coverage on the use of GIS in both analysis and policy, and updates on topics such as climate, water pollution, transportation, and energy.
