Interpreting Our World–100 Discoveries That Revolutionized Geography
Joseph Kerski, one of ESRI’s education managers, has recently authored a book that is very obviously based on his personal enthusiasm as a geographer, who is tremendously proud of his profession. The book’s title, Interpreting Our World – 100 Discoveries That Revolutionized Geography, addresses the idea that a broad range of different events at different times pushed forward the subject of geography – by geographers (in the broader sense), who interpreted these events and made meaning of them using and developing methods of geography. Therefore, the book mainly tells the coherent narration of how geographers have helped to improve the world. More or less, a story of success of geography is told, a song of praise for the geographers’ profession and abilities that bring benefits to everyday life.
