The 2nd edition of Europe increases awareness and understanding of Europe and instills incredible diversity that exists in that region, and for readers to appreciate that diversity. It uses the European Union as an organizing focus while discussing modern events in two sections. The systematic section covers the environment, cultural geography, population, settlement systems, economies, and political geography. The regional section examines Europe on a country-by-country basis.
