Summary
In 1995, Blij (geography, Michigan State U.) wrote a book about the world from a geographic perspective for television watchers. Here he presents a new look focusing more on the US, and taking into account three factors that did not seem crucial a decade ago, but do now. His underlying arguments is that geographic literacy is a matter of national security, and that the weak state of geographic knowledge among Americans constitutes a critical disadvantage in an increasingly complex world.
