Introductory College Geography Textbooks, 1940-1965: A Bibliographical Summary.
Bergen, John V.
Over ninety citations comprise this bibliographic survey on beginning college geography textbooks intended as: 1) a book selection and reference tool for librarians and teachers, 2) a bibliography for curriculum development for teachers and administrators planning and organizing new geography courses; 3) a reference for teachers searching for geographic principles and new approaches; and, 4) a record of textbooks according to major course emphasis. The textbook sections are organized systematically by topic and by geographic area. Part one lists general types of textbooks, and part two enumerates specialized types of textbooks. Complete author entries are provided with separate listings in chronological order by author for cross reference. Additional features include a list of supplementary textbook materials comprising available study guides, workbooks, and general atlases; a listing of books reviewed in "The Journal of Geography" and/or The Professional Geographer by volume and date; and a publishers list with addresses.
