Description
Praise for Harm de Blij "Television's first geography correspondent ... is a worldly authority who covers major news events by explaining how each one has been influenced by geography." --TV Guide "A big-league crowd pleaser who explains terra incognita for the legions who failed Cradle of Civilization 101 the first time around." --People magazine "Start a world crisis, and de Blij will take to the airwaves explaining its geographic background." --Washington magazine "Geography is the science of place. Its vision is grand, its view panoramic. It sweeps the surface of the Earth, charting the physical, organic, and cultural terrains ... Harm de Blij has reminded us of the matching valence of erudition and beauty in science and its communication." --Science "De Blij's former students are more than happy to talk about the influence he had on them. Students from the 1960s--now professors, deans, and department chairs--speak of his charisma, intellect, and spellbinding lectures as if they had just walked out of his classroom." --Miami magazine
